Diethylene Glycol Distearate (DEGDS/DGD)

DGD is a removable embedding medium (for thin and thick sections) that provides embedment free sections. Good for immunolabeling and high resolution light microscopy.

Unit : kit

REF: D14010 Categories: , , Tag:


Advantages: Thin or thick embedment free sections can be obtained. Sections are easy to cut and ribbons are easily obtainable. Enhances the integrity of the specimen as it floats on the water. Sections produce interference colors according to its thickness. Ethanol and n-butyl alcohol are used as dehydrating agents. 1. Capco, Krockmalnic, & Penman (1984).

Kit consists of:  
450 ml DGD MSDS_13255
450 ml Ethanol MSDS_15055
450 ml n-Butyl alcohol MSDS_11920
