A specifically formulated repellent to keep paraffin from sticking to laboratory surfaces. It can also be used to clean or provide a barrier on metal, wood and plastic surfaces in paraffin cluttered areas. Best sprayed onto a cloth or tissue and then applied as a thin coating to effected surfaces. Not recommended for use on microtome blades, blade holders or base moulds that come into direct contact with specimen ribbons as PARA/Gard™ will dissolve the paraffin section.
The latest PAP Pen is still a superior hydrophobic liquid that creates a secure boundary on glass and plastic around a tissue specimen during IHC procedures. The fluid flows as a light blue on the slide and easier to see than the original (clear) PAP pens.
