The TEC-III Tissue Embedding Center is equipped with a host of new design features and capabilities that enable histotechs to embed tissue samples and create paraffin embedded tissue blocks efficiently, comfortably and without error. The TEC-III's modular design includes a dispensing console, a thermal console, and a cryo console that can be configured any way to accommodate a histology lab's volume and workflow requirements.
Modular Design Fits Any Tissue Embedding Histology Workflow
The TEC-III Tissue Embedding Center has a unique three console design (dispensing, thermal and cryo) that provides a spacious workspace and can be arranged to fit left -> right or right -> left embedding workflows.
Built-in Features Enhance User Comfort and Tissue Embedding Productivity
8 heated forceps wells with drainage ports come standard with the TEC-III Tissue Embedding Center, as well as 2 built-in paraffin block trimmers and 2 front drawers for surplus paraffin. The entire tissue embedding station surface is lit with high definition non-glare white LED illumination. The tissue embedder is programmable for timer and standby modes, so there is no need for the unit to stay heated when not in use.
Intelligent Design for Tissue Embedding Essentials
The adjustable paraffin dispenser paddle can accommodate all sizes of tissue cassettes, including mega and super mega tissue cassettes. The thermal console can hold baskets from any processer – up to 2 baskets (200 cassettes) or 3 baskets with the trays removed (300 cassettes). The cryo console surface can accommodate up to 60 tissue cassette or molds, while maintaining a consistent temperature as low as -12 degrees C.
