(EUKITT classic has been on the market place since 1953 and has proven to be useful due to its distinct characteristics: Fast Curing, Crystal clear optically with a universal refractive index (1.49). As well, it offers good fluidity, low shrinkage and is easy to use. The EUKITT classic may be used either manually or in an automated mode.
The product holds up well in the presence of water and trace levels of Alcohol. It is very well suited for all pale color preparations as well as colorless preparations.
EUKITT has a neutral pH and offers extended storage times of all slide preparations for years without any sign of cracking or discoloration.
