Technovit® by Kulzer: The Resins and Accessories for all Methacrylate Embedding
Technovit is one of the most sought after name in Methacrylate embedding medias in the world due to its diversity and availability of different kits and properties. There is a media for each of your applications.
The systems developed by Heraeus Kulzer in collaboration with renowned scientists and institutes to embed tissue in plastic material for histological studies have proven themselves in practice for decades. They are successfully used for diagnostic and research purposes in medicine, veterinary medicine, and botany. They are also successfully used in cutting technology for industrial applications and biomaterials.
The systems fulfill important requirements such as embedding at low temperatures, thin and semi-thin section techniques and optimal division and abrasion properties. The sections can be easily stretched, and under the light microscope the stained preparations show excellent morphology.
The scientific and economic conditions for histological studies of tissues are significantly improved with Heraeus Kulzer‘s histology technology.
Simple, rational handling, as all components are compatible with one another
Due to the special material properties, the standard stain methods, enzyme chemistry and immunohistochemistry used in histological laboratories can be used, including in-situ hybridization
In contrast to all other embedding materials used in light microscopy in histological technology, uniform thin and semi-thin sections can be made after plastic has been embedded. In the process morphological details remain excellent. The mineralized and cellular structures can be better determined in undecalcified specimens embedded in plastic. The mineral matrix and the cartilaginous and ligament tissues are very well maintained.
The results of enzymatic immunohistochemical studies and in-situ hybridization show more sensitive and specific activity because all Technovit plastics harden at low temperatures and below freezing temperatures due to the special composition of the polymerization systems.
Technovit 9100 is a plastic embedding medium based on methyl methacrylate that hardens at low temperature. Use for the embedding of mineralized tissues with extensive possibilities of staining for LM. Complete kit.
The unique EMS Technovit Polymerization Device (TPD) is a blue light curing device for all Technovit resins. The unit has built-in reflectors for homogenous curing of the blocks. The TPD fits up to 9 embedding molds and is generously sized.
