Tissue-Tek® 10% Neutral Buffered Formalin
The Tissue-Tek 10% Neutral Buffered Formalin is an excellent choice for tissue fixation. Buffered to the proper pH, Tissue-Tek 10% Neutral Buffered Formalin prevents the formation of formalin pigment that can impede diagnosis or require additional work to remove. The fixative is formulated, manufactured, and packaged in an FDA-registered, ISO 9001 and ISO 13485 certified facility for quality that you can trust. The Tissue-Tek 10% Neutral Buffered Formalin comes ready-to-use with no unnecessary dilutions and is compatible with the Tissue-Tek VIP Series processors as well as the Tissue-Tek®
Formalin Safety System for safe neutralization and disposal. Tissue-Tek 10% Neutral Buffered Formalin can replace any 10% neutral buffered formalin wherever it is used, whether at grossing or at tissue processing.

Offered in 70% v/v, 95% v/v, and 100% ready-to-use concentrations, Tissue-Tek Reagent Alcohols simplify reagent exchanges on tissue processors and automated slide staining systems, helping to reduce dilution errors and save valuable time.
