TheraLin® Tissue Fixative Overview
The TheraLin® Tissue Fixative is a non-formali-based fixative that preserves both the morphology of tissues and cells for standard immunohistochemistry and histopathology procedures, and also preserves the integrity of proteins, and post-translational modifications, such as phosphoproteins, which are an indication of a protein’s activity.
The TheraLin® Tissue Fixative allows for standardization of biopsy collection, fixation, and the pathologist’s workflow, providing equivalent immunohistochemistry and cytological assessment to standard formalin fixation, including H&E staining, and does not interfere with antigen retrieval for a variety of immunostaining procedures. It requires no special handling, can be used at ambient temperatures, and collected biopsies can be stored at refrigeration temperatures (4ºC) prior to processing. Samples can be processed using standard methodologies for ethanol based embedding in paraffin, and blocks can be stored for extended periods for future analysis.
