The use of Histo-Clear in the laboratory means no longer having to breathe xylene when preparing histological sections. Distilled from oranges, carefully purified, and stabilized, Histo-Clear is one of the safest clearing agents available.

Histo-Clear not only improves safety but also results. Histo-Clear leaves tissue less hard and brittle than xylene, facilitating the cutting of thin sections and prolonging microtome blade life. Nuclear morphology is rendered in fine detail. Histo-Clear enhances the clarity and vibrance of acidophilic stains and improves staining of Harris’ Hematoxylin with a brighter Eosin background. Histo-Clear can directly substitute for xylene and yields excellent results in automated tissue processing.

Protocol

Immunohistochemistry (IHC) is a vital tool, not just at your wet bench but also in clinical labs the world over. IHC is used extensively in hospitals and veterinary practices in grading and studying cancers, and the results may determine what treatment a patient gets – including the controversial Herceptin!

But it’s also pretty useful in research. Got a protein you’re trying to locate in a tissue? PCRs and Western Blots looking a bit hazy? Want some pretty pictures for your thesis? Immunohistochemistry may be just the technique you’re looking for.
