Histo-Clear II, like its predecessor Histo-Clear, is a safer histological clearing agent that leads to the production of high-quality tissue slides. Histo-Clear II is non-toxic and completely biodegradable, thus reducing disposal costs. Histo-Clear II has a greatly reduced citrus odor compared to other citrus-based histological clearing agents.
Note: Histo-Clear II is not compatible with many synthetic mounting media. For best results, use Omnimount (HS-110).
Histo-Clear II is also a long-standing favorite in dry mounting procedures and aqueous mounting. Please confirm compatibility with your mounting media before using Histo-Clear II within wet-mounting with synthetic media.
Histo-Clear and Histo-Clear II are excellent non-toxic clearing agents replacing xylene.
This has all the properties of Histo-Clear with a much-reduced citrus odor. It may be substituted for toluene and xylene without any change in protocol.
