Fix for Life is a low-hazardous embalming method with the unique feature to preserve lifelike morphology without the risks of exposure to pathogens when using fresh-frozen bodies or to toxic levels of formaldehyde and phenol when applying conventional embalming methods.
In microscopy, F4L-preserved tissue produces excellent results with various histological and immunochemical techniques. Do a pilot with the Fix for Life method to explore what F4L can offer to your research projects.
Almost all embalming and preservation fluids worldwide in use contain formaldehyde and phenol which are highly toxic compounds that can easily enter the body through the respiratory system and the skin. All F4L-products are phenol-free and contain no or less than 0.4% formaldehyde. Only for the fixation of the body by perfusion a reduced amount of formaldehyde is added to the embalming composition (0,2-0,3% per body weight).

F4L-embalming fluid fixes your tissue without losing its consistency, flexibility, and colour. Bodies can be easily perfused through the femoral or carotid artery by pump or gravitational force.
F4L-immersion fluid is a low-hazardous preservative used for storing the F4L-embalmed bodies in tanks. It preserves your bodies and maintains the morphological features of the tissue. It can even revive the colour of prosections that have been intensively used during dissection courses.
Antiseptic fluid for soaking your body cover sheets to keep your bodies moistened and protect them against microbial attack in between the dissection course days.
Body surface sanitising spray to protect the body surface and skinfolds against microbial growth.
F4L-body bags are two-layer laminated bags with low-permeability for water and oxygen. The optimal protection for your embalmed bodies during long-term (cold) storage.
