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 35mm 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.
This device is used as an aid when programming a microwave oven to achieve an ideal target temperature for 20-100µl 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 Teflon® coated glass slide, each well 8mm in diameter which will maintain the uniform shape of the droplet; 4 liquid crystal temperature strips ranging from 35 to 50°C are affixed to each well to monitor the microwave oven temperature.
A calibration slide for microwave staining. A set which includes two glass slides. Slide #1 has liquid crystal squares corresponding to the following temperatures: 35°C, 40°C, 45°C; Slide #2 has liquid crystal squares corresponding to the following temperatures: 50°C, 55°C, and 60°C. This calibration set will ensure reproducible programming of the oven to achieve an ideal target temperature of large staining volumes (50-200mL solution).
The specimen holders accommodate 6 or 12 specimen batches from fixation through resin infiltration. They reduce handling and save time and costly chemicals. The holders fit our H417 PP Petri Dishes, on page H4.
The outside dimensions of the holders are: 50.8mm diameter x 19mm High (44.5mm High with handle), (2" dia. x .75" H [1.75" H with handle]).
T840 has 6 wells, 12.7mm diameter x 17mm deep (.5" dia. x .67" D).
T845 has 12 wells, 9.5mm diameter x 17mm deep (.375" dia. x .67" D).
The mesh openings are 420µm.
The small hole is intended to receive the temperature probe (used to control temperature settings) while processing tissue in the microwave.
Numbered mats, available for both sizes, are plastic laminated to resist chemicals and may be written on with a marker. With the holder placed on the mat, easy identification of specific wells is possible.
The kits include one specimen holder, one ID mat and 20 polypropylene Petri dishes (58 x 15mm) suitable for use in the microwave.
The rectangular polypropylene Wellplate Inserts have 6, 12, or 24 wells and will fit into the standard 6/12/24 Wellplate design. A 420µm opening, polypropylene mesh is at the bottom of each of the insert wells.
The outside dimensions of the Wellplate Inserts are: 81.3mm W x 123.5mm L x 2.4mm H
Well dim. of 6-wellplate inserts: 24.1mm dia x 22.3mm D
Well dim. of 12-wellplate inserts: 14.2mm dia x 22.3mm D
Well dim. of 24-wellplate inserts: 11.2mm dia x 22.3mm D
Depth of well from top to bottom on all Wellplate Inserts: 17.68mm
