embedding specimen cassettes

Tissue Cassette Bases

made of acetal polymer (unless otherwise noted) for use with metal cover

Disposable plastic tissue cassette bases are suitable for holding and identifying tissue samples in processing, embedding and sectioning procedures. The cassettes fit securely in microtome chuck adapters. They are molded from a high density polymer that is totally resistant to the chemical action of histological solvents. The slanted writing surface accepts writing easily, permitting sample identification throughout all stages of embedding and long afterwards when archived. They are available in several colors. These cassettes are made to accept standard metal lids, Product No. 27167. Sold in dispenser boxes of 500 or cases of 1500.

CellSafe Biopsy Cassettes
CellSafe™ + Biopsy Capsules shown
open and closed & inserted into a
regular tissue cassette.

CellSafe™ + Biopsy Capsules v2

The CellSafe™ + Biopsy Capsule is designed to contain small tissue fragments and biopsies during tissue processing. The blue CellSafe™ + Biopsy Capsule makes it easier to see small pieces of tissue contrasting with the blue mesh screen. The CellSafe™ + Biopsy Capsule with a hinged cover fits into a regular cassette. Top and bottom consist of extra fine nylon mesh, 200 x 200 micron mesh screen, preventing small tissues from getting lost during specimen preparation, keeping them safe. The plastic frame and nylon mesh are suitable for use in common tissue processing reagents including formaldehyde solutions, Bouin's fluid, alcohol solutions, xylene, chloroform, citrus-based clearing agents and paraffin wax (melting point up to 65°C). The plastic frame is made from the same material widely used in the manufacture of plastic processing cassettes. If you are using any unusual reagents it is suggested that you carry out preliminary chemical compatibility tests before using the CellSafe™ + Biopsy Capsule to contain tissue samples. The CellSafe™ + Biopsy Capsule is designed for single use only.

Interior dimensions of a regular cassette are: 30 x 26 x 4.92mm H.
Exterior dimensions of the CellSafe™ + Biopsy Capsule are: 27.5 x 25 x 4.57mm H.
