Tissue Glue uses a two-step process to adhere tissues onto a microscope slide. Tissue Glue is particularly useful for maintaining strong attachment of the tissue to the slide during Heat-induced Epitope Retrieval (HIER) in preparation for immunohistochemical staining. The first reagent is applied to the tissue to form attachment points on the slide and on the tissue. The second reagent contains a glue-like substance that covalently bind to the attachment points, thereby firmly attaching the tissue to the slide. Although Tissue-Glue works with all slides, positively charged slides are recommended in order to achieve the optimal results.
This product is designed for use with both frozen tissue sections and paraffin embedded tissue sections for adhering the tissues firmly onto a glass microscope slide.
