embedding mold with electron microscopy specimens
  • Especially useful when embedding with LR White, LR Gold, and Lowicryls for electron microscopy
  • Can be used for both low temperature UV and thermal polymerization
  • Unique configuration provides recesses for Thermanox® Cover Slips or ACLAR® film to insure anaerobic polymerization (see ACLAR® under "Embedding")

Following curing, each of the specimen blocks can be removed by flexing the Mold. To restore flatness of the mold, simply slide it back into the provided metal Clamping Frame. PTFE resin is nonreactive and provides durability, flexibility and ease of release.
