Tissue-Tek® Tec5 Embedding Module

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.
