Green reagents for histology catalog - 2

Our challenge Milestone is striving to improve the laboratory work environment by developing safer and greener reagents and accessories. Through to our line of products important steps in the histological specimens preparation, such as fixation, decalcification and processing, can be dramatically shortened in time by improving the instrumentation powersaving features. Great attention is also given to the development of reagents, with the goal to eliminate operators exposure to toxic reagents such as xylene and formaldehyde, for a safer laboratory environment. FineFIX, FormSAFE MileONE &...

FormSAFE. HIGH SAFETY FORMALIN PREFILLED BIOPSIES CONTAINER Today’s reality In December 2013 the EU-REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals) adopted a decision to reclassify formaldehyde as a Category 1B carcinogen and Category 2 mutagen under the EU CLP (Classification, Labeling and Packaging) Regulation. As a Category 1 carcinogen, formaldehyde use will be regulated by the restrictive Carcinogens Directive in EU workplaces from January 1st 2016. This will mandate the replacement of formaldehyde with less dangerous alternatives and, when that is not...

MileONE - MileTWo. FORGET UNDER-PROCESSED FATTY TISSUE Tissue Processing with no compromise to quality, even for fatty tissues Fatty tissues are known to be the most tedious tissues Pathology Laboratories have to deal with. Processing breast, skin, brain and fatty colon specimens often leads to either suboptimal morphological quality or inconsistent results No compromise to quality for any tissues of any size; fatty tissues included. MileONE and MileTWO were designed by Milestone to grant consistent processing of normal fat content tissues with no compromise to high-fat content tissues like...

JFC. THE HIGH PERFORMANCE XYLENE-FREE PROCESSING SOLUTION The JFC Solution is an innovative patented solution composed of a mixture of ethanol, isopropanol and a long-chain hydrocarbon. Under the influence of microwaves this solution becomes highly effective in the extraction of water and lipids from biological tissue, in a single step, without the need for further dehydration or clearing. The miscibility of the three components of the JFC Solution lets the performance of dehydration and clearing to take place in a single step, dehydration and clearing, thus representing a significant...

MoL-DECALCIFIER. EDTA BASED DECALCIFYING SOLUTION For faster decalcification time, the process with EDTA is best carried out at a pH value of 7.2-7.4. Milestone has developed an innovative, pure EDTA solution, based on a stoichiometric mixture of bibasic or tribasic EDTA to reach this pH value without the addition of an acid/base buffer. The combination of increased temperature, stirring and the MoL-DECALCIFIER, during the decalcificacion phase allows fixation, decalcification and processing of bone marrows within 48 hours. Optimized molecular results A presentation* during the “First...

MCC. OPTIMIZED CRYOEMBEDDING COMPOUND The perfect cryoembedding composition for the PrestoCHILL system • MCC is a proprietary formulation of glycols and resins specifically developed for optimal support during cryotomy of dissected tissues down to -40°C. • Being water soluble, MCC doesn’t leave residue on slides, eliminating non specific background staining. Additionally, MCC will not dull microtome knives. Available in 125 ml squeeze bottles, box of 12 bottles About Milestone Milestone was founded in 1988 as a company specialized in advanced microwave instrumentation for analytical and...
