Polarstat Plus

NEW PolarStat Plus™

Medium Viscosity Formulation

This cryo embedding media works with an anti-roll plate or may be led off the blade with a brush. It is especially well-suited for Mohs cryostat sectioning.

This formulation freezes at -10°C. Optimal Cutting temperature ranges from below -10°C to -40°C. Does not produce a powder residue while sectioning at -25°C or colder. Works with Auto Cryo Approach in Microm cryostats. No residue is left on slides during the staining procedure, thereby eliminating undesirable background staining.

Tiisue Marking Dyes

NEW Tissue Marking Dye

Our new tissue marking dyes are formulated to provide very bright and clear identification of microscopic areas of interest and to easily identify the orientation of excised tissue samples. These dyes are readily visible on cut frozen tissue sections. These dyes will not run, bleed, fade or lose intensity from tissue processing and/or during staining procedures in the histology laboratory.

  • Permanent tissue marking dyes.
  • Colors formulated to define margins without bleeding or fading.
  • Durable, bright dyes hold permanently through processing and staining procedures.
  • Unique lid design allows for complete removal or they may be conveniently flipped open with little risk of drying.
  • Available in 2oz. flip-top bottles in the following colors:

    Yellow: SDS (522KB PDF)
    Red: SDS (521KB PDF)
    Green: SDS (514KB PDF)
    Black: SDS (510KB PDF)
    Blue: SDS (522KB PDF)

Applications/intended use:

  • Mohs surgery procedures to mark tissue specimens to map and identify the orientation and borders of tissue specimens.
  • Pathology grossing of tissue to identify areas of interest and orientation of surgically excised tissue specimens.
  • Marking surgical margins.
  • Identifying serial segments of large tissues to ensure proper orientation and embedding.
  • Identification of multiple pieces of tissues processed in one cassette
  • May be used on fresh or fixed tissue.

Note: Pretreatment of tissue to be dyed with #27208, ColorBond™ Mordant may greatly enhance the performance of tissue marking dyes, especially with fatty tissues.
