The Tissue-Tek TEC 5 Tissue Embedding Console System consists of two modules that together create an ergonomic workstation for the production of paraffin blocks. The user can position the individual modules from either left to right or right to left, depending on personal preference.
The work surfaces of both modules are at the same height and thus the specimens can be transferred easily from one side to the other. The system is fully programmable, with automatic start-up and shutdown capability and precise temperature control of all areas. The capacity of the workspace is 10 cassettes at each side of the dispensing control unit. An electric forceps can be connected easily and placed in one of the six heated wells (to prevent paraffin sticking to the forceps).
