Features

  • Made of chemically resistant, microwave-transparent polypropylene and designed for vacuum down to 20" of Hg (1 torr/1mm Hg) and temperatures up to 70°C.

  • Designed either to run a continuous vacuum during microwave processing or a vacuum cycle.

  • Improves fixative penetration and ultrastructural preservation during microwave-assisted chemical fixation.

  • Improves resin infiltration in the microwave and greatly reduces the turnaround times when compared to established microwave protocols.

  • Can be used in or outside of the PELCO BioWave® Pro Microwave Tissue Processor.
