PELCO® Pro CA44 Tissue Adhesive
PELCO® Pro CA44 is an instant tissue adhesive based on cyanoacrylate. Developed to glue tissue on specimen holders used in vibrating microtomes such as the PELCO easiSlicer™, Microslicer™ and Vibratome®. Although the tissue adhesive is unstable in boiling water, it is recommended to use#19920 PELCO® Pro Cyanoacrylate Debonder to remove or clean cured cyanoacrylate. Supplied in 20ml bottle with dispenser tip, closed with ptfe coated steel pin for optimum seal. Comparable to Loctite 404 tissue adhesive.
The shelf life of cyanoacrylate glues (and epoxies) can be extended by storing them at lower temperatures; -20°C. At lower temperatures, the adhesive becomes very viscous and the speed of chemical reactions is practically reduced to zero. It will keep the adhesive stable for years. Before use, let the adhesive thaw with the container sealed to avoid condensation into the adhesive.
