Histoform S, Q, N and N+
Special embedding forms made of Teflon with a stainless steel bottom for heat dissipation were developed to keep the temperature in the low ranges during polymerisation. Furthermore, the special profile of the embedding forms allows for embedding that is easy to use and cut.
Polyethylene embedding forms 25 mm & „cradle“ insert for the round specimen holder on the rotation microtome. Additional sizes: 15 - 30 - 40 - 50 mm (only cylinder)
Technovit Histoblade and blade holder
The Technovit Histoblade is specially suited for cutting tissue samples embedded in HEMA (2-hydroyethyl methacrylate) and materials with industrial applications with a section thickness of up to 1μ. Thus, coupled with the exceptionally stabile blade holder, a cheap alternative to other knives is available.
Manual specimen holder
The manual specimen holder is an important aid for making plano-parallel thin sections and the target preparation for polished thin sections.
Object holder press
Press made out of metal for flat pressing of the MMA sections on the object holder during the drying process.
PE film for covering MMA sections on the object holder after stretching (e.g. Technovit 9100), format: 25 x 75 mm
Technovit 3040 and Histobloc
Technovit 3040 is a quickly hardening 2-component plastic with a methyl meth acrylate base (MMA). It is used to block or fasten embedded plastic specimens with the Histobloc or for socket embedding. The chemical composition allows for a stable, permanent bond with the hardened block Technovit 7100 or Technovit 9100.
