SLIDE BRITE is a revolutionary dewaxing and clearing reagent for histologic techniques. It is a safe and effective alternative to xylene. It contains no carcinogens, no toxins, is odorless, and is classified as non-flammable and non-hazardous. Its flash point is above 140ºF (almost double of that of xylene). A qualified laboratory that is certified by the State of California Health Services has performed toxicity screening. SLIDE BRITE was designated non-hazardous on the basis of aquatic toxicity; thus eliminating hazardous waste and exposure to women of child-bearing age to xylene and cancer-causing reagents.
