ChapTec’s histological fixatives are formaldehyde-based solutions. Tissue fixation with formaldehyde ensures tissue preservation by stabilizing the cells as close as possible to the in vivo state. Proper fixation avoids autolysis and thus the progressive loss of cellular details.
Such a fixation makes it possible to prepare the tissues for the subsequent techniques and it facilitates the making of microscope slides. It causes the hardening of tissues allowing them to be handled without breaking them.
Available container sizes: Pot-fixatives, 4x4L, 10L, 20L and 208L.
