The Sakura Tissue-Tek TEC 5 is a two-module embedding console system designed for efficiency and customization that suits even high volume laboratories. Providing a compact and single workstation, the Tissue Tek TEC 5 enables both specimen orientation and paraffin embedding.
The TEC 5 system can be customized to user preferences by placing the modules in a left-to-right or right-to-left arrangement for optimal workflow. Other advances that optimize operations include: a finger touchplate and optional foot pedal for precise control of paraffin flow; a dispensing tower knob to adjust the flow rate to specific tasks; and, an automatic ON/OFF switch that allows manual override for greater flexibility.
To support highly efficient and optimized performance, the Tissue-Tek TEC 5 system provides temperature control over key areas for uniform regulation. Individual temperature control for left and right thermal storage compartments allow the use of base molds as either paraffin baths or warming caddies. The system’s efficient cooling system maintains temperature levels even when the plate is full.
Other Sakura Tissue Tek TEC 5 Tissue Embedding Console System features include six easy-to-reach forceps wells, an ample chilling area for approximately 60 specimen blocks, a panel display of temperatures in all heated and cooled areas, and easy-to-clean surfaces with no hidden corners to catch paraffin or debris. Additionally, the Tissue-Tek TEC 5 system uses environmentally safe refrigerant and a quiet compressor to reduce noise fatigue.
