Overview

  • Product namePAP pen

Properties

    Applications

  • Application notesThe PAP pen is a special marking pen that provides a thin film-like green-tinged hydrophobic barrier when a circle is drawn around a specimen on a slide.
    This water repellent barrier keeps staining reagents localized on the tissue sections, prevents mixing of reagents when differentially staining two sections on the same slide, and allows use of less reagents per section.
    Insoluble in alcohol and acetone, PAP Pen markings can be optionally removed with xylene after the staining procedure is complete.
    PAP Pen is good for approximately 500 uses.

    Abreviews
    Precise and reliable barrier pen. After application it dries rather quick and after that there's no leakage. Found it very useful for IHC when I had to isolate from each other few tissue samples on the same slide. It resists incubation in buffers with Tween-20. Soluble in Xylene.
