Today HistoPot is synonymous with the fixation of Biopsy Samples in Ireland and through our distribution network worldwide.
HistoPot is a trusted brand that has built a reputation in the safety of Patients Biopsy Sample Fixation, which is the single most important stage in the Histopathology process.
For this reason, Serosep has focused its expertise in offering the Medical Scientist a quality-controlled fixative they can trust and the Customer Service to back this up.
From our manufacturing facility here at Serosep the HistoPot is now regarded as one of the benchmarks for the fixation and transportation of millions of critical Histological samples worldwide.
Serosep first began manufacturing formalin-based fixatives in 1999. This was a period in Ireland when it was customary for each Histopathology Laboratory to make their own fixatives.
A range of ready-to-use fixatives in a variety of specimen containers was launched by Serosep in 2000. This product went on to be called ‘HistoPot’.
Serosep was the first company to convince the local market of the benefits of purchasing ready-to-use fixatives and today almost all the Histopathology Laboratories in Ireland use fixatives manufactured by Serosep.
Buoyed by its success in the local market Serosep began exporting the HistoPot to a host of other markets. Today HistoPot is synonymous with biopsy tissue fixation and is sold through our network of dedicated distribution network in over 30 countries worldwide.
Suppling to 95% of the island of Ireland market and export to over 30 countries worldwide.
HistoPot is manufactured and produced on site in Limerick, Ireland allowing for a high-speed turnaround time on orders placed.
Serosep practices and efficiencies allow us to offer a competitive price to our end users and distribution network worldwide.

In the fields of histology, pathology and cell biology, fixation is a chemical process by which biological tissues are preserved from decay, thereby preventing on-going biochemical reactions.
Fixation is the single most important determinant of high quality histological sections. 10% neutral buffered formalin is the most widely used fixative for routine histology. There are many variables when using formalin as a tissue fixative.
HistoPot Polycube is the latest addition to the HistoPot range of sample containers. The Polycubes are packed in an easy-to-store stackable cube with a durable high – density polyethylene container. The 10L and 20L Polycubes offer all HistoPot users the same source of formalin throughout the histopathology process.
Every unit comes with a tap for easy dispensing which allows users to top-up smaller HistoPot units or fill their tissue processors with the same formalin that has been used for the fixation from the surgery.
Serosep manufactures a range of biopsy tissue fixatives that include: Formalin and a range of other formulations for use in the Histopathology Laboratory.
These fixatives are available in a range of different size biopsy fixation containers that are sold under Serosep’s brand called ‘HistoPot’. HistoPot comes in a range of container sizes from the smallest size HistoPot 40ml up to the HistoPot Polycube 20L.
HistoPot Polycube comes in a 10L and 20L easy-to-use dispensing container with attachable tap for all the other formalin requirements in the Laboratory.
