PELCO® Microwave Capsule Holder with Lid

The improved PELCO® Microwave Capsule Holder has three design features that set it apart from the previous design.
  • "Stops" on the legs to keep the capsule base level during loading
  • A hole with a stop in the base to allow the 00 embedding capsule to be set in place easily
  • The new capture top that has a recess to keep the embedding capsule lid in place throughout the polymerization process in the microwave

Microwave Capsule Preparation Station

Capsule Preparation Station

This Preparation Station is a capsule loading platform to maintain cleanliness from epon liquid spillovers from the above Microwave Capsule Holder 36131-2. This pre-loading station avoids a potential situation of water contamination in the microwave polymerization procedure. The 36131-6 permits the technician/scientist to pre-load 00 capsules. Capsules are then transferred to 36131-2 for the polymerization step in the microwave.

Microwave Resin Polymerization System

Designed for resin polymerization using the 36131 or 36131-2 Capsule Holders in the PELCO BioWave® Microwave Tissue Processor

During microwave-assisted resin polymerization the microwave polymerization system is placed on the Microwave Polymerization Stand on the PELCO ColdSpot® Pro. The tray is filled with water to cover the 36131 or 36131-2 capsule holders. The insulator pad is placed on the surface of the water and the lid placed on the tray. There are two holes in the lid so that the temperature probe can be inserted on either side to monitor heating rates. This new system controls the rate of heating and the temperature maximum (100°C) without the loss of water during the polymerization process. Microwave wattage will control the heating rate which ensures a quality polymerization each run.

PELCO BioWave Pro Microwave Processor Temperature Probe

Temperature Restrictive Temperature Probe with PTFE Coating

This PTFE-coated probe is supplied with the PELCO BioWave® Pro+ and is a replacement probe for all the previous PELCO® Microwave systems.

It is used to monitor and/or maintain preset temperature maximums during microwave processing. The temperature probe is accurate to ±1°C (from 0°C to 100°C) and will maintain ±1°C in water and most fixative solutions. The 10cm probe is protected with a PTFE coating for decalcification and special stain applications. It has a 40cm long lead and is designed to fit into Product No. 36138 PTFE Probe Stand. This stand has a 12cm long arm that can be adjusted up and down over an 18cm range to allow precise location of the probe into processing vessels or a container. The Product No. 3536 PELCO® EM Microwave Vacuum Chamber is also designed for use with this temperature probe.
