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.

CellSafe™ + Biopsy Capsules v2

The CellSafe™ + Biopsy Capsule is designed to contain small tissue fragments and biopsies during tissue processing. The blue CellSafe™ + Biopsy Capsule makes it easier to see small pieces of tissue contrasting with the blue mesh screen. The CellSafe™ + Biopsy Capsule with a hinged cover fits into a regular cassette. Top and bottom consist of extra fine nylon mesh, 200 x 200 micron mesh screen, preventing small tissues from getting lost during specimen preparation, keeping them safe. The plastic 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). The plastic frame is made from the same material widely used in the manufacture of plastic processing cassettes. If you are using any unusual reagents it is suggested that you carry out preliminary chemical compatibility tests before using the CellSafe™ + Biopsy Capsule to contain tissue samples. The CellSafe™ + Biopsy Capsule is designed for single use only.

Interior dimensions of a regular cassette are: 30 x 26 x 4.92mm H. 
Exterior dimensions of the CellSafe™ + Biopsy Capsule are: 27.5 x 25 x 4.57mm H.
