DISPOSABLE BASE MOULDS

PVC

Disposable base moulds offer ease and convenience of operation. They are inexpensive enough to be discarded after use, yet strong enough to be re-used. Moulded from specially formulated plastic material, they offer excellent thermal exchange. They have a smooth interior finish and rounded corners to facilitate their removal. They are available in the same variety of sizes as metal moulds and can be used with the same styles or types of cassettes and embedding rings.

BASE MOULDS FOR HISTOLOGY

Stainless steel

These moulds are made from polished stainless steel, offer optimal thermal conductivity, as well as easy paraffin block removal. All corners are precisely rounded for optimal paraffin ribboning. Like the plastic base moulds, these fit to histology cassettes. Overall height is 10mm, but depths for paraffin wax is 5mm.
Measurements are derived from the face of the mould, minor batch variation occurs.

CELLSAFE™ "NIFTIES", BIOPSY CASSETTES

Plastic frame and nylon mesh

The Cellsafe™ Nifties are designed to contain small tissue fragments and biopsies during tissue processing. The Cellsafe™ Biopsy Insert with a hinged cover fits into a regular cassette. Top and bottom consist of extra fine nylon mesh preventing the loss of tiny tissue pieces during specimen preparation. The plastic frame and nylon mesh are suitable for use in common tissue processing reagents including Formaldehyde solutions, Bouin's Fluid, Alcohol solutions, Xylene, Chloroform, Citrus based clearing agents and Paraffin wax (melting point up to 65°C). The plastic frame is made from the same material widely used in the manufacture of plastic processing cassettes. If you are using any unusual reagents it is suggested that you carry out preliminary chemical compatibility tests before using the Nifty to contain tissue samples. The Cellsafe™ is designed for single use only.
Interior dimensions of a regular cassette are: 30 x 26 x 4.92mm H.
Exterior dimensions of the Cellsafe Biopsy Cassettes are: 27.5 x 25 x 4.57mm H.
