TruSlice Tissue Slicing Systems

Accurate & Consistent Slicing | High Quality Processing | UKAS & CAP Compliant

The TruSlice Cutting System was developed at Guy’s and St. Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust1 in London, UK. This system eliminates dissection inaccuracies associated with conventional cutting procedures. The system is suitable for slicing both fresh and fixed tissue. It greatly reduces the time to gross specimens and ensures optimal fixation and high quality tissue processing. TruSlice facilitates the precise slicing of fresh breast tissues in accordance with recommendations of HER2 testing in the UK2 and as recommended in the guidelines from ASCO/CAP for labs carrying out IHC on breast specimens in the USA1,2.

Art# 27213-RK Tissue Marking Dye, Rack & Mordant

Our new tissue marking dyes are formulated to provide very bright and clear identification of microscopic areas of interest and to easily identify the orientation of excised tissue samples. These dyes are readily visible on cut frozen tissue sections. These dyes will not run, bleed, fade or lose intensity from tissue processing and/or during staining procedures in the histology laboratory.

  • Permanent tissue marking dyes.
  • Colors formulated to define margins without bleeding or fading.
  • Durable, bright dyes hold permanently through processing and staining procedures.
  • Unique lid design allows for complete removal or they may be conveniently flipped open with little risk of drying.

Available individually as well, see art # 27213-1

CellSafe™ 5 Five Chamber Biopsy Cassettes

  • Small needle core tissue specimens may be processed separately
  • Ideal for breast and prostate core biopsies
  • 200 x 200 micron nylon mesh screen top and bottom
  • X-ray transparent fine mesh
  • Available in white and blue

The CellSafe™ is designed to contain small tissue fragments and biopsies during tissue processing. The CellSafe™ 5 was developed for the simultaneous preparation of core biopsies, ideal for breast and prostate specimens. Each well is numbered for identification. The blue cassette aids contrast and visualization of light colored biopsies, normally experienced with breast tissue.

The acetyl resin 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). If you are using any unusual reagents it is suggested that you carry out preliminary chemical compatibility tests before using the CellSafe™ 5 to contain tissue samples.
