TDSAirChek® Badgesarrow12AirChek® Badges

Monitor vapor levels, simply and effectively.

Airchek Badges provide an innovative, simple and effective system for monitoring vapor levels, including

  • Formaldehyde
  • Glutaraldehyde
  • Xylene
  • Toluene
  • Isopropanol

The badges are simply clipped on to the technician's clothing and a record is kept of name, location and time, providing continuous sampling for personal monitoring and allowing the measurements required under Government regulations.

One badge provides continuous sampling over 8 hours. A second badge can be used to supply information for analysis of 15-minute peak exposure periods.

Stain-'N'-Temp Slideemsexclu.gif (210 bytes)arrow12Stain-'N'-Temp Slide*

This device is used as an aid when programming a microwave oven to achieve an ideal target temperature of 20-100 µl staining volumes. The tool is designed to give quantitative temperature information about the droplet during staining of tissue sections on electron microscope grids.

This unit is a 4-well PTFE coated glass slide, each well 8 mm in diameter which will maintain the uniform shape of the droplet. 4 liquid crystal temperature strips ranging from 35 to 50° are affixed to each well to monitor the microwave oven temperature.

Fix-'N'-Temp Containeremsexclu.gif (210 bytes)arrow12Fix-'N'-Temp Container*

This container will permit rapid specimen handling and provides temperature information during microwave irradiation. A liquid crystal strip is affixed into the bottom of a 35 mm diameter petri dish and covered with a thin layer of EMbed resin. The temperature range is 35°C-60°C. This container is ideal for tissue fixing by microwaves. The two active temperature windows are 45°C and 50°C.

Neon Bulb Arrayarrow12Neon Bulb Array*

This Neon Bulb Array is made from silicone and has many advantages

  • Silicone has a high resistance to extreme heat
  • The silicone holds each bulb snugly and prevents bulb spillage during handling

Each bulb in the mat is 2.5 cm apart. The mat is divided into quadrants. A mark on the back left corner of the array lid is used to key the back left corner of the oven. There are letters and numbers along each edge for easy placement on the Alpha-numeric tray. The mat size is 8" x 8".

ncubation Tray for Microwave Immunostainingarrow12Incubation Tray for Microwave Immunostaining

For immunostaining, we recommend a water load that is the same size as the bottom of the microwave cavity in order not to disturb the distribution of microwave energy within the cavity. In our research, we found that between 150 and 200 ml of water in the bottom of the incubation tray prevents evaporation of the droplets of reagent. A PAP pen should be used to maintain the droplets at a uniform size and shape.

Cassette Holder for Microwave Fixation and Processingarrow12Formalin Solutions: A New Cassette Holder for Microwave Fixation and Processing

Each holds 64 or 40 cassettes in a single horizontal plane, which conforms to research regarding the way to achieve the best distribution of microwave energy. It is based upon an original design in wood (the 'Bamboozle') developed by Dr. Richard Dapson of Anatech, Ltd. It is adapted to a Pyrex® container which allows the paraffin to easily hold its temperature, and minimizes the risk of overheating of specimens due to lack of sufficient microwavable load.

arrow12Cassette Rack for Microwave Histoprocessing

We are very pleased to announce the development of a simple and reliable device designed to hold up to 24 standard cassettes for histoprocessing in a microwave. This new rack is manufactured from PTFE resins, and will withstand repeated exposure to fixatives, dehydrating agents, clearing agents and paraffin. It is easily cleaned in hot water. It is intended for use with a disposable tray which holds the processing chemicals.

Four processing racks and trays will fit into the EMS 9000 Microwave Processor, so that up to 96 cassettes can be processed in one run. Using this system, the histotechnologist needs to handle the individual cassettes only once, to load them into the racks. The rack is then placed into a tray containing the dehydrating medium, usually 100% ethyl alcohol, and microwaved. After dehydration, the rack containing the cassettes is transferred into a tray containing the clearing agent, usually isopropanol, and microwaved. After clearing, the rack is transferred to a tray containing liquid paraffin, and microwaved. The whole process can take as little as 25 minutes (for small specimens, such as needle biopsies). There are no hazardous chemicals needed (no xylene!).

Micro Tube Rack- Microwaveable arrow10Micro Tube Rack- Microwaveable

Polypropylene floating racks keep microtubes submerged in a water bath – perfect for controlling sample temperature. Detachable legs give the users more options: attach legs so rack stands upright on benchtop, or detach legs so sample tubes can be quickly popped out by pushing down onto any surface.

Ideally to hold microcentrifuge tube in water bath during polymerization, such as LR White®, JB4®…

Not autoclavable. Measures: 60 mm high, including legs.
