Sakura Tissue-Tek 4 Embedding Station
The Sakura Tissue-Tek 4 embedding station consists of an embedding console (4710) and a cryo console (4709) that features solid-state electronics and a modular uniplane design configured for left-to-right or right-to-left workflow. The Tissue-Tek 4 embedding station provides a single workstation for specimen orientation and paraffin embedding. The insulated work space is of sufficient size to allow you to manipulate samples comfortably and efficiently.
The Sakura Tissue-Tek 4 embedding station features an easy-access digital LED control panel that displays temperature in all heated and cooled areas. All temperature controlled areas are uniformly regulated; heated areas from 50 to 70C, forceps holder from 50 to 80C. The automatic timer allows you to specify the time you desire the instrument to be ready for embedding (the instrument calculates the time it should turn on the heater and compressor).
The Sakura Tissue-Tek 4 embedding station is equipped with an automatic on/off feature with manual override that achieves operating temperature in just 20 minutes from a cold start. A finger touch plate on the Sakura Tissue-Tek 4 controls paraffin flow while the dispensing tower knob allows you to adjust the flow rate.
