Histo-Clear II


  • Low risk
  • Biodegradable
  • Smell reduced to citrus
  • Histo-Clear II, like its predecessor Histo-Clear, is a safer histological cleaning agent that leads to the production of high-quality tissue slides. Histo-Clear II is non-toxic and completely biodegradable, reducing disposal costs. Histo-Clear II has a greatly reduced citrus odor compared to other citrus-based histological cleaning agents.


Histo-Clear II is not compatible with many synthetic mounting media. For best results, use OmniMount (NDIHS-110). Histo-Clear Ii is also a longtime favorite in dry mount and aqueous mount procedures. Confirm compatibility with your mounting media before using Histo-Clear II with a wet mount with synthetic media.
