Microscopic observation of agricultural and botanical products can yield a wide variety of information about your samples. Visikol® for Plant Biology™ helps in quality control by clarifying tissues, rendering them transparent so that insects, soil, fungus, and foreign matter are easy to see.

The United States Pharmacopoeia, the American Herbal Pharmacopoeia, as well as the FDA recommend the use of Hertwig’s Solution as a clearing agent for microscopic examination. Visikol for Plant Biology brings the power of these standard quality control techniques to your laboratory.
