Polyimide Tag for Hot Metal Processing
temperature range up to +300° to 400°C, short exposures up to 600°C

  • 3" core size
  • 100 tags/roll

Resin Embedding Labels
temperature range up to +100°C

  • Intended for the identification of resin-embedded samples in BEEM® capsules, gelatin capsules, and molds
  • Chemical-resistant labels withstand embedding in histological resins used in microscopy
  • Fold along perforation to create a double-sided label that is embedded with the sample, and contains alphanumeric text or 2D barcodes
  • Small size accommodates various sizes of embedding capsules & molds
  • Withstand resin-baking in temperatures up to +100°C
  • Available on 1" or 3" cores for printing with all major brands of thermal-transfer printers

The labels are resistant to standard ethylene oxide gas sterilization, consisting of a 60-minute exposure to 759mg/L of ethylene oxide gas, at 55°C, and 40-80% relative humidity, followed by a two-hour aeration cycle.

Use XAR-Class (Xylene Resistant) resin ribbons.

specimen embedding capsules

Specimen Embedding Capsules

the standard in the EM field

BEEM® pioneered the development of certain TEM specimen preparation products. Their embedding capsule remains a standard product for routine EM. Preformed capsule tips in the shape of a truncated pyramid with a flat 1 x 1 mm face at the end reduce trimming time and produce cleaner surfaces.

  • A hinged cap is used for closure or may be used for making flat-tipped molds.
  • Hardened blocks may be removed using a BEEM® Capsule Press. Filling the capsules is made easier with BEEM® Capsule Holders (#132, 132B).
  • Capsule size 00 is preferred, but for specimens with certain shapes (long, particulate) see BEEM® bottle-neck or conical capsules.
  • For smaller specimen sizes, a smaller capsule size is available.
  • Polyethylene capsules have long been preferred in standard EM resin preparation. Acrylic resins and UV polymerization technology have increased the use of gelatin capsules.
