Red on bone (left); green on muscle with frozen section (right).


Adherence in Formalin

Vividex Tissue Marking Medium adheres to tissue when submerged in formalin. Shown above: Vividex Tissue Marking Medium produces no leaching (top row); standard pathology inks show extensive leaching (second row). Leaching in formalin risks cross-contamination of color onto tissue and interference with laboratory equipment. All specimens in photo are shown 24 hours after submersion in formalin.
