The Cell Culture Mold

This mold is designed primarily for embedding cell culture specimens grown either directly on the bottom of a dish or on the filter when cross sections of the cells are needed

  1. Cells grown on petri dishes are cut into strips just before the propylene oxide dehydration step; when Propylene Oxide is added, the strips lift right off the bottom
  2. When the strips are ready for embedment, they are rolled on an applicator stick into a wad and gently lowered into the well (the strips should not float)


  • Many cells can be examined in cross section
  • There is no need for trimming - sectioning can begin immediately
  • The curved side makes the tip very strong in spite of its thinness
  • Easy detection of a strip of cells
  • The label is placed on the round part so as not to interfere with the specimen
  • 24 cavities
