tissue-tek vip fixativemsdsarrow11Tissue-Tek® VIP® Fixative

Eliminate the need for routine warm water flushing with the Tissue-Tek® VIP® Fixative. Using the unique Neutra-pHase™ technology, the Tissue-Tek® VIP® Fixative produces no precipitates in the presence of alcohol, contrary to all other 10% neutral buffered formalin products. The Tissue-Tek® VIP® Fixative will not promote formation of salts within the tissue processor lines which can cause costly damages to any brands of tissues processors unless regular maintenance is performed. Since the base ingredient is formalin, it is fully compatible and can replace 10% NBF without any adjustments to your procedures. The product is offered in three convenient package sizes: 1 gallon, 2.5 gallons and 5 gallons.

Tissue-Tek TEC 5 Tissue Embedding Console SystemTissue-Tek TEC 5 Tissue Embedding Console SystemTissue-Tek TEC 5 Tissue Embedding Console System

The Tissue-Tek® TEC™ 5 System provides a compact, single workstation that enable both specimen orientation and paraffin embedding. It can be customized to user preferences by placing the TEC™ 5 modules in a left-to-right or right-to-left arrangement for optimal workflow.

Other included advances that optimized operations include a finger touch-plate and optional foot pedal for precise control of paraffin flow, a dispensing tower knob to adjust the flow rate to specific tasks, and an automatic ON/OFF switch that allows manual override for greater flexibility. The TEC™ 5 also offers other advances for heightened performance, like temperature control over key areas for uniform regulation (all heated areas from 50°C to 75°C in 1°C increments; Cryo Module plate from – 10°C to 0°C in 1°C increments) individual temperature control for left and right Thermo Storage Compartments to allow use as either paraffin baths or warming caddies for base molds, and an efficient cooling system to maintain temperature levels even when the plate is full.

More TEC™ 5 features includes six easy-to-reach forceps wells, an ample chilling area for approximately 60 specimens blocks, a panel display of temperatures in all heated and cooled areas and easy-to-clean surfaces with no hidden corners to catch paraffin debris. Electrical forceps are optional.

arrow10EMS Paraffin Tappers

The embedding tool you can't do without

EMS Paraffin Tappers come in multiple sizes to fit different embedding molds. It holds the heat so the tissue stays flat in the mold. They will help you get any piece of tissue embedded flat and in the same plane for easier cutting.

These Paraffin Tappers are helpful with multiple piece skins, large pieces of uterus, and even those multi-piece biopsies. They reduce re-cuts and re-embeds, as the tissue is embedded flat in the embedding mold the first time. Available in a kit with a base and five tappers. Replacement tappers are available in all sizes, including an additional XX-Large tapper.

The kit includes

  • Stainless steel storage base
  • 5 x 5 x 1.5 mm paraffin tapper
  • 13 x 12 x 1.5 mm paraffin tapper
  • 22 x 22 x 1.5 mm paraffin tapper
