continuous innovation for pathology
The novel, innovative Tissue-Tek® Paraform® Sectionable Cassette System eliminates the need to perform manual steps at the embedding centre. Using Tissue-Tek Paraform in combination with the Tissue-Tek AutoTEC Automated Embedding System allows the automation of the time consuming, manual process of embedding. The unique Tissue-Tek Paraform Cassette System consists of an outer frame that is compatible with all commercially available cassette printers and microtome chucks, and an inner cassette, which is made of Paraform material. The cassette preserves the orientation of the tissue sample from grossing through sectioning, eliminating the risk of orientation errors or losing tissue samples. A unique feature of Tissue-Tek Paraform is that it is easy to section, just like paraffin wax.
The Tissue-Tek Paraform Cassette is compatible with all existing laboratory methods and manual embedding processes. In addition, it can accommodate a variety of specimens, even those requiring special orientation (e.g. skin or arterial specimens), in one of the three available cassette types: Standard, Biopsy and Biopsy 13 x 13.
