Blue Ribbon is a universal paraffin containing synthetic polymers that can be used both as an infiltration and embedding medium.
The paraffin enables the impregnation of tissue to occur rapidly and completely.
The wax however will remain stable even at elevated temperatures.
It is available in a case of 10 x 2 lb (0.91 kg) lightweight bags to facilitate handling.
The bluish tint promotes better visibility of smaller or milky-colored/opaque specimens popular with Dermatology and Urology Labs.
