Our wax trimmer is an appliance for removing excess paraffin from tissue cassettes. It is compact, tabletop design fits easily in any histology lab. Melted paraffin is shaved away. Collection tray stays in place by magnetic contact with the unit. The convenient PE disposable tray liner allows easy disposal of the runoff wax - no need to scrape out the collection tray.





  1. Remove equipment from packaging and place in an area away from water/moisture sources, on a stable worktable
  2. Connect AC power cord to back of unit, then connect power to mains supply
  3. Attach magnetic paraffin collection tray and insert plastic collection insert inside metal collection tray. NOTE: Brim of plastic liner can be folded down, along side of tray that is against the unit. This will not affect the magnetic hold of the tray to the main unit
