The CellTec Block Trimmer+ efficiently removes excess paraffin from the outside of a tissue cassette following embedding. The edges and writing surface of the tissue cassette are de-waxed effortlessly by passing the paraffin block across the patterned heated work surface. Melted paraffin wax is then collected in a disposable collection pot.
The Block Trimmer+ allows users to prepare tissue blocks with no risk of damage to the printed text or barcode on the tissue cassette. It incorporates an ultra-fast heating system for rapid warm-up, which combined with an extra-large heated work surface allows multiple blocks to be passed across the work surface at one time. This significantly improves laboratory workflows.
