Aquatex is used for e.g. LEUCOGNOST stained specimens. For preservation purposes and subsequent optimal microscopy, the stained sections are normally mounted using a suitable mounting agent and covered with a cover glass.
One of the most important parameters of mounting agents is the refractive index (nD) which should be around 1.5, the refractive index of glass. Aquatex, an aqueous mounting media, should be used especially with specimens prepared for enzyme and lipid determinations i.e. specimens that must not be dehydrated with an ascending series of alcohol. Aquatex is also used for LEUCOGNOST stained specimens.
100 ml Aquatex are sufficient for approx. 200 - 300 samples.
Certifications: Aquatex is an IVD registered product and CE certified, thus can be used for clinical diagnostic purposes.
