The Tissue-Tek TEC III is a complete embedding center system complete with three independent modules: a thermal console, a central paraffin dispenser workstation with cold spot, and a cryo console.
The Tissue-Tek thermal console features two chambers that adjust from 50’C to 70’C. The front chamber holds cassettes with processed tissue specimens prior to paraffin embedding, and a rear chamber has a store and warm base. The console has separate displays that indicate when chambers are actually being heated.
The Tissue-Tek TEC III Embedding Center‘s central paraffin dispenser is the central work station that is used to heat and dispense paraffin. This station includes a heated 2 liter paraffin chamber, a heated orientation platform, a patented “Cold Spot” for chilling specimen into position on the first paraffin pour, plus a dispenser island for dispensing paraffin by finger touch control or foot switch. With a durable, nylon working surface, the large orientation platform is heated to assure that the paraffin does not solidify in the preliminary phase of embedding.
