Sakura Tissue-Tek 4740 Coverslipper
The Sakura Tissue-Tek 4740 Film coverslipper is designed to coverslip biological specimens that are mounted on standard 25 x 75 mm (1 x 3 inch) microscope slides. The use of a special, resin-coated, film and xylene eliminates the need for cover glass and mounting media. The film length is user-defined in four selectable options: 45 mm, 50 mm, 55 mm, and 60 mm. Coverslipping with the Sakura Tissue-Tek 4740 is performed at approximately 3 seconds per slide with continuous processing of up to 3 pre-loaded baskets.
The Sakura Tissue-Tek 4740 coverslipper is equipped with a microcomputer that controls the mechanical movements, as well as the positioning and length of the coverslipping film. An LCD offers a visual display of selectable options and instrument status. All operating functions are controlled through a control panel.
