Visikol® Endo: Gross Tissue Visualization

We have been commonly asked by researchers to develop a formula of Visikol to render a wide range of tissues transparent for gross visualization. To this end we have launched Visikol Endo which quickly and easily renders a wide range of tissues transparent for facile visualization. Using Visikol Endo is as simple as submerging a sample in Visikol and waiting until it is rendered transparent.

Visikol® ENDO for Skeletal Prepartion

In addition to our high-throughput proprietary Visikol® TOX process we have developed a Visikol® ENDO based skeletal visualization approach. 

Our Visikol® ENDO based approach has many of the same benifits of our Visikol® TOX process: 

  • Reduced skeletal processing time
  • Non-destructive approach
  • Reduced oversight
