The Shandon Histocenter 3′s smart-timer digital control will have the unit at temperature and ready for use when you arrive at work. At the end of the day, the unit will turn itself off. When paraffin is dispensed, the light automatically illuminates and when embedding is finished, the light automatically shuts off. Hotspot illumination is provided by a halogen lamp with 5 brightness settings.
The easy-to-use touch screen display allows you to adjust settings or view temperatures quickly. The thermoelectrically cooled “Cold Spot” aids specimen orientation. The Histocenter features a fast melting 5-liter capacity paraffin tank and gravity feed, “paraffin-on-demand” dispensing system, and a forceps holder for right or left-hand operation.
The large tissue storage tank with removable lid holds 200 molds and is able to hold 6 Shandon Pathcentre® baskets, 8 Shandon Excelsior™ baskets, 2 Shandon Hypercenter® baskets and all competitor’s baskets.
