Quick mounting medium for the histological technique
EUKITT® - technical advantages
With the high-quality classics mounting media EUKITT® it was found a valuable and extremely userfriendly product in 1953, the early days of the company. EUKITT® is characterized by fast curing, crystal-clear optics with a favourable refractive index, good fluidity and low shrinkage. Therefore it is used very often in coverslipping machines.
The product is tolerant against water as well as traces of alcohol and is excellent suited for inclusion of pale colored preparations, that appear in media with lower refractive index rich in contrast, as well as those with colorless components.
Due to the neutral pH, stable storage of properly manufactured preparations is possible for many years without cracking and discoloration. EUKITT® is colorless, doesn’t change color nor structure of mounted material. EUKITT® is resistant to heat, cold (-17 °C), humidity, daylight and UV light, therefore it conserves preparations unchanged for long periods. EUKITT® should be stored at 20 °C. After use of EUKITT® it is advantageous to close the bottle immediately. In regions with high temperatures thickening can occur by evaporating of the solvent, this effect can be easily reversed by subsequent dilution with Xylene.
Additional EUKITT® can also be used for closure of level glasses of an anatomic pathology specimens collection.
