A Tool for Research

Visikol for Plant Biology has been used by researchers at hundreds of universities to aid in the study of plants. Rendering whole tissues transparent allows for comprehensive study of morphology and development, as well as for the study of disease vectors and infection pathways. Visikol for Plant Biology is a versatile tool and is compatible with a wide range of staining procedures.
