SkipDewax for Paraffin-Embedded Tissue Slides

SkipDewax is an aqueous, non-toxic, bifunctional pre-treatment reagent which simultaneously removes paraffin and unmasks nuclear DNAs/ antigens in paraffin-embedded tissue sections

Applications of SkipDewax:
• Tissue FISH
• Immunohistochemistry (IHC)

Advantages of Using SkipDewax:
• No need for separate deparaffinization with xylene
• No need for subsequent hydration in graded alcohols
• Saves time for the entire pre-treatment process by omitting separate dewaxing and subsequent hydration steps
• Effectively unmasks nuclear DNAs and antigens
• No special waste disposal procedures necessary

Method of Use:
• Treat paraffin-embedded tissue slides directly in 0.5X - 1X SkipDewax solution at high temperature in water bath, pressure cooker, or steamer.
