Product Category Description:
These premium cassettes feature a fluidic flow design for the optimization of biopsy processing and embedding. Innovative design with vented side walls maximizes fluid exchange. Unique patented 135° side wall inner basket provides the optimal handling of small specimens. Small pore design (0.67mm pore size) offers a more effective fluid exchange when compared to sponges, screens, and bags. Secure seal ensures safe specimen retention. Standard 45° print surface is compatible with automatic printing devices. Items with attached covers have a large labeling area and use a frangible hinge. Positive release latch and safe lock base allow for ease of opening and closing. Molded of reagent-resistant acetyl polymer resin for chemical resistance to histological solvents.
Two-piece biopsy cassettes include the same construction and design features as standard cassettes, but are supplied with unattached covers.
Multichamber cassettes have the same construction and design features but are divided into four separate chambers for multiple processing.
Ultra small pore biopsy cassettes eliminate the need for sponges, bags, biopsy papers, and screens by incorporating a significantly smaller pore size (0.25mm) into the cassette design. These cassettes maintain all of the innovative features available on premium VWR biopsy cassettes.
Mini biopsy cassettes have the same design features but are one third the size of a standard cassette. They may be used as a stand alone processing cassette. Ideal for needle biopsies, bite biopsies, tissue flakes, and microwave techniques. Eliminates the need for sponges, screens, or bags. The 33° angled writing surface is not compatible with automatic printing devices.
Ordering Information: Biopsy, two-piece biopsy, multichamber, ultra small pore, and mini biopsy cassettes are designed to be used with VWR base molds (see 18000-116 series), sold separately.
