The Slide-Sealing Compound ioGlyceelli

J. W. Bates


"Glyceel" has been considered for many years to be the best sealant for whole mounts of soil, plant-parasitic, freshwater, and marine nematodes. However, "Glyceel" has not been available since the mid 1980s when its production was halted. Currently available substitutes are inadequate. The original formula for "Glyceel" has been found in the literature and is given here with a method of preparation. "Glyceel" prepared in this way by the author has been used and appears to function well. Key words: Glyceel, nematode, nitrocellulose, slide sealer, Zut.
