- Are your bench-tops and drawers crowded with petri dishes and pillboxes full of various sized specimen blocks?
- Have you spent hours to look for a block for re-sectioning?
- Do you wish you could neatly catalog, file and store all of those blocks in one convenient place?
If you answer yes to any of those questions, now you can organize and safely store all of your
specimen blocks with the newly introduced BEEM® Specimen Storage System 2000®
The system consists of four newly designed Blocklock® storage modules (#69956, #69957, #69958, #69959) and a Covered Mounting Panel (#69950) that fits in a standard "D-Type" 3-ring binder (optional) – A 1-inch binder will accommodate two Covered Mounting Panels, and 1.5-inch binder accommodates three Panels.
Each Blocklock module has an adhesive backing which when exposed permits it to be permanently mounted on any grease-free surface.
All Blocklocks can be inserted in a Plastic Protective Box (EMS #69956-B & 69958-B, #69957-B, and 69959-B) or, by utilizing the adhesive feature, mounted in combination with other Blocklock modules on the BEEM® mounting panel (EMS #66950). This new Storage System 2000 permits blocks size "00", size "3", and BEEM® flat embedment to be indexed, combined under one cover along with any associated data sheets, and stored upright in 3-ring binders, on the shelf, at your reach for ready reference.
This system is infinitely expandable to high or low volume block storage. The choice is yours.
