Supa Mega Mother Ship Cassettes

EMS #62511-Series

Directions for Use

The Supa Mega Mother Ship Cassette consists of a base and lid and a slotted donor cassette.

Use a standard cassette writer to print on the donor cassette before inserting into Mother Ship.

Insert the donor cassette into the Mother Ship and continue to apply pressure until the cassette "Clicks" and is locked in place. Only after hearing the "Click" is the donor cassette fully secured.

Special Note for Users of the Leica RM 2200 Series Microtome

When using blocks made from the Supa Mega Mother Ship Base 8 mm-depth mold (Catalog #62354-61), the Leica RM 2200 Series Microtome needs a slight modification to the knife holder. Simply remove the 1.4 mm thick black plastic cover from the knife holder base by using a small flat head screwdriver. The plastic cover actually covers a recess for an optional lighting system for the microtome. Once this cover is removed and the chuck returned to zero orientation, the super cassette chuck can move without hitting the knife holder base and the 8 mm block can be sectioned.

If the plastic cover is not removed, it is recommended that only the standard Supa Mega Stainless Steel Base Mold 60 x 45 x 15 mm (Catalog #62354-60) be used for embedment.

The table below shows the recommended molds for the major microtomes on the market.
