PELCO® Tissue Cassettes & Biopsy Cassettes

Histosette I® Tissue Cassettes II

Tissue Processing Cassettes, but with a 30° angle. Sold in dispenser boxes of 500 or cases of 1500.

Slimsette™ Tissue and Biopsy Cassettes

made of acetal resin polymer

The Slimsette™ Cassettes, a new generation in the Simport Tissue and Biopsy Cassette family. These cassettes are more compact and efficient than previous cassettes. They feature a unique recessed cover allowing more cassettes to be stacked in automated cassette labeling machines and increasing the number of cassettes that may be stored in storage cabinets.   

Slimsette™ Cassettes are molded from high density acetal resin polymer allowing them to sink rapidly. Acetyl resin polymer is compatible for use with histological reagents and solvents. The covers may be opened and closed repeatedly and always relock securely without specimen loss. The front labeling area has a 45° angle.

Micromesh™ Biopsy Cassettes, One Compartment

with covers assembled

Cassettes have 1676 square openings of 0.38mm allowing for greatly improved fluid exchange without having to use biopsy pads. Large anterior and posterior slots in both cassette and cover ensure that the Micromesh™ cassette will sink rapidly. A large square compartment, 27mm, is perfect even for needle biopsies. The cover does not protrude above the cassette, a great space-saving feature allowing more cassettes to be stacked in automatic labeling machines and tissue processors. 45° angle writing area. Covers are pre-installed on cassettes. Sold in dispenser boxes of 250 or cases of 1000.

Unisette™ Biopsy Cassettes

Specially made for biopsies.

Similar to Unisette™ Tissue Cassettes. Made of acetal polymer with 1mm openings assure maximum fluid exchange. Sold in dispenser boxes of 500.

Available in 7 non-cytotoxic, non-metallic colors.

Outside dimensions: 28.5 x 41 x 6.7mm (1.12" x 1.61" x 0.26")
Inside dimensions: 26 x 30 x 5mm (1.02" x 1.18" x 0.2")

NEW Super Mega Mothership Cassette

made of acetal polymer

With an internal cavity a third of the depth of the conventional Super Mega, the Super Mega Mother Ship provides an innovative solution for the processing and embedding of large tissue specimens.

Using this cassette helps meet recommendations for HER2 testing in the UK and ASCO/CAP in the USA. By reducing specimen thickness (5mm or less), processing time is shortened while ensuring high quality tissue processing.

The Super Mega Mother Ship cassette uses an innovative permanent docking bay for a standard tissue processing cassette printed with ID barcodes and/or test information. This enables the specimen to be entered onto a LIMS guaranteeing its accurate and reliable tracking. 100 printable cassettes are provided with each box of 100 Super Mega Mothership Cassettes. Casting can be done in 30 minutes at -8°C. Available in 7 colors.

Inside dimensions: 64 x 50 x 5mm (2.52 x 1.89 x 0.51")
Outside dimensions: 75 x 52 x 17mm (2.95 x 2.05 x 0.71")

Tissue Cassette Bases

made of acetal polymer (unless otherwise noted) for use with metal cover

Disposable plastic tissue cassette bases are suitable for holding and identifying tissue samples in processing, embedding and sectioning procedures. The cassettes fit securely in microtome chuck adapters. They are molded from a high density polymer that is totally resistant to the chemical action of histological solvents. The slanted writing surface accepts writing easily, permitting sample identification throughout all stages of embedding and long afterwards when archived. They are available in several colors. Sold in dispenser boxes of 500 or cases of 1500.

These cassettes are made to accept standard metal lids, Product No. 27167:
