Wax Block Trimmer+ efficiently removes excess paraffin from the outside of a tissue cassette following embedding. The edges and writing surface of the tissue cassette are de-waxed effortlessly by passing the paraffin block across the patterned heated work surface. Melted paraffin wax is then collected in a disposable collection pot.
The Block Trimmer+ allows users to prepare tissue blocks with no risk of damage to the printed text or barcode on the tissue cassette. It incorporates an ultra-fast heating system for rapid warm up, which combined with an extra-large heated work surface, allows multiple blocks to be passed across the work surface at one time.
Our Block Wax Trimmer is an efficient appliance for removing excess paraffin from embedding tissue cassettes. This wax trimmer can be used with all sizes of biopsy and mega cassettes. The grooved, heated surface channels melted wax into a removable collection tray that stays in place at the base of the unit by magnetic contact. Disposable plastic liners are included to insert inside the collection tray for easy disposal of the runoff wax. There are two heat settings on the side of the cabinet; low is approximately 80°C (176°F) and high is approximately 100°C (212°F).
