  • Hi, Do you have a digital version of the product insert that comes with this? Someone is intending to bring this to my imaging facility and I'd like to know more about it and the recommended drying time. Thanks, Ben

    Thank you for visiting! We don't include an insert with this item, other than the SDS. I've attached a link for you here. You may be interested in reading the Q&A on our Amazon listing, as well. Perhaps it will help answer your questions. We always recommend that you do your own research and include the specific specimen to be mounted within your search. There is a great amount of very useful information out there from scientists and educators, who are qualified to answer most questions. Let us know if you need anything else!
