      DescriptionXylol - IVD for Microscopy
      OverviewXylene (isomeric mixture) - for histology, belongs to the aromatic hydrocarbons and can be used for for histological, cytological, and bacteriological investigation of sample material of human origin. Xylene is the gold standard and most common aromatic solvent which has been used for decades in routine histoprocessing (process for dehydrating the tissue) deparaffination, and clarification applications. A mixture of the ortho-, meta- and para- isomers provides for a higher degree of hydrophobicity prior to mounting and coverslipping. Histological grade Xylene was developed to be a robust clearing agent in both histological and cytological applications. It is a critical raw material in all histological staining procedures. It supports the QA process in Pathology. It is a CE-certified, IVD product. For more details, please see instructions for use (IFU). The IFU can be downloaded from this webpage.
