Clearene is a selected blend of terpenes formulated specifically to replace xylene and toluene in histology and cytology laboratory procedures. It is less oily than other solvent substitutes and therefore dries quickly and does not leave a residue.
Clearene penetrates tissue rapidly without overhardening and is safe to use with all open and closed system tissue processors. It is miscible with alcohols, paraffins and mounting media. It contains an antioxidant to prevent stain fading.
Clearene is biodegradable and offers the desirable characteristics of a good solvent but not the harmful drawbacks of aromatic hydrocarbons such as xylene and toluene-based products.
