Paraffin

 

Hista-Flex™ELITE

Formulated as an all purpose wax for general tissue embedding and sectioning.  ELITE combines highly purified, double filtered fine cut paraffin wax with a microcrystalline additive.  ELITE  provides effective tissue infiltration, great flexibility when sectioning, low cutting resistance and superb ribbon continuity.

Melt point 54-57°C.  Available in 1 Kilo or 2 Kilo bags in 8 Kilo cartons

 

Hista-Flex™ ULTRA

A careful combination of highly purified, double filtered 'fine cut' paraffin wax blended with plasticizing polymer and a small addition of Dimethyl Sulfoxide.  ULTRA is recommended for larger tissue samples or where improved infiltration is necessary.  Benefits include faster tissue penetration and additional preservation characteristics.

Melt point 54-57°C.  Availabe in 1 Kilo and 2 Kilo bags in 8Kg cartons.

 

Hista-Flex™ PRIME

'PRIME' benefits from the introduction of a plasticising polymer to our purified, double filtered, 'fine cut' paraffin wax producing a high level of elasticity and tensile strength allowing top quality sections to be produced with minimal shrinkage in the block.  No tearing, cracking or expansion, gives the right result every time.

Melt point 54-57°C.  Available in 1 Kilo and 2 Kilo bags in 8 Kilo cartons.

 

Hista-Flex™  EXCEL

(New to the range) A high melting point wax with a polymer addition formulated for hotter climate countries.  Hista-Flex™ EXCEL is resistant to section wrinkles and wax block softening during tissue sectioning.

Suitable for general embedding and sectioning and ideal for use with sliding microtomes.

Melt point 58-60°C.  Available in 1 Kilo bags in 8 Kilo cartons
