Product Description

Polyvinyl Alcohol

Application Notes

Polyvinyl alcohol is used for mounting cells on slides for detection of cell-surface antigens by immunofluorescence. It is useful as an anti-fading agent. It has various pharmaceuticle applications, In tablet coatings, for example, it protects the tablet from environmental humidity, in eye drops it moistens the eye, and in cell fermentation processes Polyvinyl Alcohol prevents bubble rupture to protect cells from shearing. It is used in textile sizing, adhesives, polymerization aids, and paper coatings.

Usage Statement

Research Use Only (RUO). Ready for CE IVD labeling of clinical applications.

Key Applications

Anti-fading agent||Detection of cell-surface antigens||Surfactant||Embolization agent||Fixative
