This Multi-Task BEEM Capsule Holder is an innovative holder designed to hold size "00" BEEM capsule during resin polymerization.
This holder is also a perfect tool when embedding and polymerizing resin by microwave, especially when the embedment needs to be performed under water. The direct contact of the microwave energy to the resin inside the microwave is usually causes the resin to heat to quick and that leads to micro bubbles forming inside the resin block and this causes unknown damage to the tissues. To help eliminate this problem, the resin capsule should be immersed in the water bath during microwave irradiation of the resin. This 'indirect contact' of microwave energy to the resin will help the embedding block polymerize nicely and homogeneously and also avoids the overheating of the tissue.
Mold is machined from polyethylene block, comes in two parts: bottom part which holds the BEEM capsule, and the second part which is placed on top and is securd by two plastic screws to ensure the BEEM capsules are in place and capsule lid will not pop out during under water polymerization or microwave irradiation.
Accompanies is microwave transparent tray, which holds water and capsule holder for microwave processing.
Measures: 1 1/8" L x 3" W x 2" H , accommodates 24 capsules.
You can order either the Multi-Task Capsule Holder only, or the set which includes one Capsule Holder and one Tray.

Introducing the EM5 - an innovative new design based on the widely used Ø8 mm size embedding mold. The unique two part design allows for easy removal of resin blocks, as well as incorporating many other advantages over currently available embedding products.
- Separate base and tube sections that clip together to form the familiar capsule shape.
- Care should be taken that each component is free of debris before attaching together, to ensure a proper seal.
- Easy removal of resin blocks achieved by simply pulling the mold apart by hand.
- The mold can produce blocks up to 20mm in length, however shorter blocks (˜14mm) allow for easier removal. No razor blades or capsule presses are required.
- The detachable cap section allows for easier access and manipulation of a specimen.
- For more accurate specimen alignment a small amount of resin can be cured or partially cured before clipping to the body and completing the resin block. When fully cured they form strong homogeneous blocks.
- Each mold can be clipped to other molds, allowing for the creation of trays of desired size. For volatile resins, another cap section can be clipped on to the top of the mold, creating an air tight seal.
- Each cavity is numbered 1 < 5, whilst the end support stands have designated areas for writing indexing numbers or comments.

A newly designed mold which is convenient and offers better embedments. This tray-and-mold in one unit offers a unique specimen block that no other mold can.
- Trays-and-molds are self standing. There is no need for a holding tray.
- Easy Orientation of Specimens.
The tip of each mold is only 0.3mm thick and is designed to be transparent. This facilitates the orientation of your specimen prior to polymerization.
- They form a Universal Block.
Many microscopists have to embed large specimens. The Easy Mold tip forms a flat block face which is wide enough for large specimens. This wide surface helps to prevent air bubbles being trapped around the specimen during polymerization. In addition, a positive guide form on the block offers an accurate position for clamping.
- Free Airflow for Even Polymerization.
Easy Mold trays raise the molds away from the surface of the oven, allowing air of a constant temperature to circulate freely and evenly around the specimen tip during the hardening process.
- Sealing of Capsules
If you are using Acrylate or other volatile embedding mediums (LR White, GMA, HPMA), the molds can be sealed by placing another Easy Mold on the top, and by applying a little pressure you can seal the capsule completely.
- Easy to Remove the Polymerized Block.
Due to the softness of the bottom of the mold, to release the block simply push the bottom of the mold with your thumb and your block will just pop out. There is no need for razor blades or a Capsule Press!
- Convenient Storage and Identification of Sectioned Blocks
Each cavity on the Easy Mold is numbered, and data can be written on the trays. Used Easy Molds can be used for the storage of blocks which have already been sectioned, and filed away by stacking one tray on top of another. There is no need for block storage boxes.
Each tray contains 2x10 block molds and measures 87x66mm.
They are available in two sizes:
- Size 5.6mm diameter, which corresponds to gelatin and BEEM® capsules size 3, and forms a block face of 1.6mm.
- Size 8mm diameter, which corresponds to gelatin and BEEM® capsule size "00" and forms a block face of 3mm.

- Are your bench-tops and drawers crowded with petri dishes and pillboxes full of various sized specimen blocks?
- Have you been spent hours to look for a block for re-sectioning?
- Do you wish you could neatly catalog, file and store all of those blocks in one convenient place?
If you answer yes to any of those questions, now you can organize and safely store all of your
specimen blocks with the newly introduced BEEM® Specimen Storage System 2000®
The system consists of four newly designed Blocklock® storage modules (#69956, #69957, #69958, #69959) and a Covered Mounting Panel (#69950) that fits in a standard "D-Type" 3-ring binder (optional) – A 1-inch binder will accommodate two Covered Mounting Panels, and 1.5-inch binder accommodates three Panels.
Each Blocklock module has an adhesive backing which when exposed permits it to be permanently mounted on any grease-free surface.
All Blocklocks can be inserted in a Plastic Protective Box (EMS #69956-B & 69958-B, #69957-B, and 69959-B) or, by utilizing the adhesive feature, mounted in combination with other Blocklock modules on the BEEM® mounting panel (EMS #66950). This new Storage System 2000 permits blocks size "00", size "3", and BEEM® flat embedment to be indexed, combined under one cover along with any associated data sheets, and stored upright in 3-ring binders, on the shelf, at your reach for ready reference.
This system is infinitely expandable to high or low volume block storage. The choice is yours
