ImmEdge® Hydrophobic Barrier PAP Pen

Cat. No: H-4000
Price: $148.00
Unit Size: 2 pens

Overview

The ImmEdge Pen (H-4000) is an improvement over the PAP pen for immunohistochemistry, immunocytochemistry, immunofluorescence, and in situ hybridization. It is designed to provide a heat-stable, water-repellent barrier that keeps reagents localized on tissue specimens and prevents mixing of reagents when multiple sections are mounted on the same slide.  The ImmEdge Pen barrier is stable for use with buffers with and without detergent (e.g. Tween 20 or Triton X-100, etc.).  

The pale blue barrier is insoluble in alcohol and acetone but is completely removed by all commonly used xylene and xylene substitute clearing agents. The ImmEdge Pen is compatible with enzyme or fluorescence-based detection systems.
