Eliminate the hassle of embedded block sticking to the base mold

Tissue-Tek Mold Release is used for coating Tissue-Tek® Base Molds to ensure a clean separation of embedding paraffin from the mold after the block has cooled.  The working solution is prepared by adding 5 mL of Tissue-Tek Mold Release Concentrate to 95 mL of ethyl or isopropyl alcohol.  The molds are dipped in solution and dried prior to embedding.  Once dry, the mold release provides a temporary non-stick barrier for simple, and easy release of the block from the mold.
