Paraplast® X-tra embedding agent for histology
Paraffin wax blended with synthetic polymers

Paraplast X-TRA® has been used for tissue embedding.
Made from a unique blend of low molecular weight polymers and paraffin, Paraplast® X-tra has a lower infiltration temperature that eliminates tissue “cooking,” which can cause distortion. Lower viscosity permits complete infiltration, and gives exceptional ribbon continuity with flat sections free of compression distortions. It cuts continuous ribbons of 2μm thickness.

Melting point: 50 to 54°C (122 to 129°F) (ASTM)
