Product Description

The Leica TP 1020 is a semi-enclosed tissue processor that is the perfect combination of proven technology and modern, functionally enhanced design. Gentle specimen processing and maximum safety at all stages of processing are the result of robust engineering design based on proven and precise mechanics in conjunction with a modern user interface.

The TP 1020 tissue processor offers tissue infiltration under vacuum which can be applied to any of the stations both in manual and automatic operation. This feature substantially improves tissue infiltration in a shorter time. Instruments with the vacuum feature are equipped with anodized aluminum containers.

Reducing any exposure to hazardous fumes, the Leica TP 1020 processor guarantees operator and specimen safety. The instrument variation with fume control system offers two options for removing solution fumes. The Leica TP 1020 protects the tissue specimens from drying out even during a power failure since the tissue baskets are automatically immersed in a station.

The Leica TP 1020 tissue processor offers a user-friendly, easy-to-use control panel. The buttons of the control panel are arranged in functional groups. The easy-to-read LCD indicates the station parameters such as number of tissue baskets, vacuum function and remaining infiltration time, real time, start time (delayed start), overall duration and end of run time. Each of the nine programs can be run with immediate or delayed start.
