"instant" powdered formalin
Just a quick note to see if anyone else has sampled a
product called Powdered Formalin. One of my techs got
a sample from a gentlemen at BBC Biochemical. It came
in 2 packets (A and B) and was very easy to mix. "Add
Bag A to container. Add warm water to container and
stir thoroughly. Let sit for 15 minutes. Add Bag B
to same container, mix, and let sit for 5 minutes."
After that I had 10% neutral buffered formalin ready
to go! In my opinion, it was ready before the 20
minutes was up, but figured I would follow the
directions this time.
My tech was told that the price will be about the
same, if not less, than conventional 10% formalin.
Storage is a huge factor for my lab. With this
product I will be able to store, in a drawer, packets
which will make 40 gallons of formalin!
