This disposable plastic cassette with lid is designed to hold larger tissue specimens during the embedding process and for storage
The deep base mold is designed for the MACROSETTE™ cassettes and is made of PVC for excellent thermal exchange. The mold has a smooth interior finish and rounded corners to facilitate its removal. Though disposable, it is strong enough to be reused. Temperature range: –80 to 60°C (–112 to 43°F). Volume: 5mL. Dimensions: 37Lx24Wx10Dmm (11/2x15/16x3/8").
Note: Base mold should not be used with xylene or acetone.
The cassette is twice as high as a regular HISTOSETTE® cassette. Cassette is made of high-density acetal polymer. It keeps specimens safely submerged in liquid and is totally resistant to the chemical action of histological solvents. The efficient flow-through slots maximize fluid exchange and ensure proper drainage. The one-piece integral lid eliminates the need for separate steel lids. It can be opened and closed as often as necessary and relocks securely without danger of specimen loss. Large labeling areas are located on three sides of the cassette. The anterior writing area is slanted at a 45° angle, which makes the cassette more compatible with certain types of labeling instruments. Available in a noncytotoxic, nonmetallic white color. Dimensions: 40.1Lx27.5Wx11.9Dmm (19/16x11/16x7/16").
Ordering information: Cassettes are packed in three dispenser boxes of 250 cassettes.
