Trusted Technology, Enhanced Efficiency

The PELCO BioWave® Pro+ features a new design that improves efficiency and streamlines functionality in laboratory tissue processing. It is built on trusted technology and adds enhancements for efficient processing of tissue for diagnostic and research TEM, immunofluorescence and confocal specimen processing. 

The PELCO BioWave® Pro+ was designed using over 25 years of proven experience in microwave tissue processing. Its incredible efficiency is 95% faster than traditional electron microscopy bench processing. Improvements and enhancements continue to highlight the advantages of the PELCO BioWave® Pro+ for many facets
of laboratory use. 

PELCO BioWave® Pro+ meets the current needs of the modern laboratory featuring:

  • Clickable text navigation for simple and clear screen interaction

  • Live run-time graphs for easily viewable real-time protocol

  • Simplified protocol selection screen for one-touch access to loaded and custom protocols

  • Manufactured in the USA

PELCO BioWave® Pro+ Run Screen

User-friendly Run Screens

Intuitive functions in a simple, consistent format offer all setting controls within one screen.

PELCO BioWave® Pro+ Live Run-Time Graph

Live Run-time Graph

Quick and convenient view of the current protocol in real-time provides an active view of run progress.

PELCO BioWave® Pro+ Simplified Protocol Selection

Simplified Protocol Selection

Icon-driven interface allows users one-touch access to pre-loaded and customised protocols.


BioWave Pro+ RPM App

The PELCO BioWave® Pro+ fits nicely into a core facility or multi-user environment by providing options to users for data manipulation. Each user is able to create a folder for their protocols and recorded data on the PELCO BioWave® Pro+ directly or may choose to keep their data and protocols on a USB thumbdrive. Two USB ports and the NEW Report/Protocol Manager (RPM) app simplify data transfer, review as well as custom protocol creation and upload.
