Product Description

CoverGrip™ Coverslip Sealant is the first product specifically designed for sealing the edges of wet-mounted coverslips for fluorescence microscopy. Unlike nail polish, CoverGrip™  contains no ingredients that can leach into aqueous mounting medium and affect specimen fluorescence. CoverGrip™ is made with d-limonene, a natural, environmentally-friendly solvent with a pleasant citrus aroma, and dries to form a clear, hard, durable seal along the edges of the coverslip. Available in 15 mL brush-cap applicator bottles (23005) or in 100 mL dropper-cap refill bottles (23005-1).

Note: CoverGrip™ is designed to replace nail polish for permanent sealing of wet-mounted coverslips. It can be removed by soaking slides in buffer (see product information sheet for details). However, it is not designed to be a removable temporary seal for hybridization, for example.
