Cassette Rack shown assembled and loaded.
Note the two over-sized (white) cassettes being accommodated in the center of the rack.

The PELCO HistoWave® Cassette System consists of a Cassette Tank and Cassette Rack. The design provides for ease of loading, unloading and fluid exchange during processing. The system will hold 26 standard-sized plastic cassettes or 22 standard and 2 over-sized cassettes. There is a hole in the handle for the temperature probe. The amount of reagent needed to cover 1 or 26 cassettes is approximately 500ml. It is easiest to add solutions when the system is assembled. The system is made of microwave-compatible and solvent-resistant plastics.

Use the optionally available Paraffin Heating Tile, Prod. No. 36150-1, under the Cassette Tank when more heat generation is required in the Microwave Tissue Processor for paraffin embedding.

Note: The PELCO HistoWave® Cassette System may also be used in the PELCO TissueVac® Vacuum Chamber, Prod. No's 36161 and 36160, which is an accessory for the PELCO BioWave® Pro and previous PELCO® Microwave Processors.
