Tissue Culture Monolayer Embedding Mold: Thompson Embedding Mold

This invention is a mold used for embedding mammalian cells in monolayer culture in preparation of sectioning for light or electron microscopy. Tissue culture monolayer embedding molds eliminate the need for traditional BEEM® capsules. The improved molds can be used to transfer the majority of cells from the entire surface of a cover slip to avoid losses of large amounts of cellular information occurring only randomly. In addition, other problems such as surface blemishes caused by air entrapment associated with BEEM® capsules are eliminated.


  • The mold yields several individual blocks of resin from a single slip-cover
  • The resin blocks fit directly into a chuck for flat specimens
  • The embedded surfaces are free from blemishes caused by entrapped air
  • The mold uses a minimum amount of resin
