liters. HDPE cap.
Tamper evident cap.
The polyethylenterephthalate is a thermoplastic polymer of the polyester family. PET is an
optimal oxygen, carbon dioxide and other gasses barrier. This material has an high
resistance to ultraviolet radiation and an inertia toward the mainly chemical agents
(solvents: xylene, limonene, liquid paraffines, alcohols, acids, bases etc.). It is biologically
inert. It constitutes a good water and humidity barrier. It shows a great hardness and
The bottle has an optimal grip. The absence of the handles reduces space for storage. The
anti-dropping cap permits a precise and clean use.
Secondary container: carton box.
Primary container: white bottle in High Density Polyethylene (HDPE). Useful capacity 500
ml. HDPE cap. Tamper evident cap.

Expected aim Product for the preparation of cyto-histological samples for optical microscopy.
Application Nuclear staining solution.
In Harris’ Hematoxylin the active chemical species is the complex formed by hematein(hematoxylin oxidized by potassium iodate) with potassium aluminum sulfate. This
complex has a positive charge and is therefore able to bind to anionic sites present in the
chromatin histone proteins.
