Extra Details:
The ImmEdge[TM] Pen (H-4000) is an improvement over the PAP pen for immunohistochemistry, immunocytochemistry, immunofluorescence, and In-situ Hybridization. It is designed to provide a heat-stable, water-repellent barrier that keeps reagents localized on tissue specimens and prevents mixing of reagents when multiple sections are mounted on the same slide. The ImmEdge[TM] Pen barrier is stable for use buffers with and without detergent (e.g. Tween 20 or Triton X-100, etc.).

The pale blue barrier is insoluble in alcohol and acetone but is completely removed by all commonly used xylene and xylene substitute clearing agents. The ImmEdge[TM] Pen is compatible with enzyme or fluorescence-based detection systems.

The ImmEdge[TM] Pen is environmentally friendly - it does not contain 'ozone-depleting' solvents as identified by the Montreal Protocol or the Council of the European Union (specifically, fluorocarbons and chlorocarbons).
