OverviewEntellan™, rapid mounting medium for microscopy, is an anhydrous mounting medium for microscopy used for the permanent mounting and storage of specimens, and consists of a polymer made of mixed acrylates dissolved in toluene. As it contains toluene, it should be used with water-free specimens that have been cleared with xylene prior to mounting. Due to its registration as IVD product and CE certification, it can be used in the manual application in a diagnostic laboratory. Please note that this product has not been validated for use with an automatic mounting instrument. For more details, please see instructions for use (IFU).
