Tissue-Wax is a highly purified, filtered, white paraffin wax blended with synthetic polymers and a small amount of Dimethyl Sulphoxide added to enhance tissue penetration, giving a shorter infiltration time. Suitable for routine embedding and sectioning applications. Offers very little shrinkage on cooling and high performance when sectioning, ease of cutting and ribbon continuity. Also recommended for larger or harder tissue samples as it reduces brittleness of sections enabling more flexible ribbons. Melting point 56-58oC, congealing point 54-57oC. Supplied in pelletised form.
