Sub-X is an economical xylene substitute that is an essentially odorless and nongreasy aliphatic hydrocarbon. It can be used in place of xylene for tissue processing, deparaffinization, clearing and cleanup.
Sub-X is a gentle clearant which will not over-harden tissue specimens. This selective solvent is safe to use with most plastics and tubing in open and closed tissue processors.
A compatible mountant such as Sub-X Mounting Medium must be used for coverslipping.
