PELCO BioWave Pro+

The future of microwave tissue processing is here...


The new design of the PELCO BioWave® Pro+ introduces features that improve efficiency and streamline functionality. It is built on trusted technology and adds enhancements for efficient laboratory processing. This new tissue processor further enhances processing of tissue for diagnostic and research TEM, immunofluorescence and confocal specimen processing. 


PELCO BioWave® Pro+ meets the current needs of the modern laboratory with up-to-date technology. Clickable text navigation allows for simple and clear screen interaction. Live run-time graphs provide an easily accessible view of the current protocol in real-time. The simplified protocol selection screen allows one-touch access to loaded and custom protocols.

BioWave Pro+ RPM App

Two USB ports and the NEW Report/Protocol Manager (RPM) app simplify data transfer and custom protocol upload.

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 key.

The new PELCO BioWave® Pro+ Report/Protocol Manager app facilitates data transfer and review, as well as custom protocol creation and upload.

The Report/Protocol Manager (RPM) app is designed to meet diagnostic laboratory regulations on reviewing recorded data for each protocol. Recorded data can be downloaded to the USB key and then transferred into the RPM app on a laboratory computer.

The RPM app also provides an improved design for protocol creation and review. The completed protocol can be saved to the USB key and then imported to the PELCO BioWave® Pro+ directly from the touchscreen.


Built on Trusted Technology 

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

Unmatched Control
The PELCO BioWave® Pro+ offers a unique and unparalleled level of control over microwave processes for reliable and reproducible results. By being designed to properly use microwave energy, the PELCO BioWave® Pro+ provides the tools for control of the environment at the specimen level and the internal chamber.

Variable Wattage and PELCO ColdSpot® Technology
Variable wattage provides an essential avenue of control for the PELCO BioWave® Pro+. As compared to “pulsed power” microwaves, variable wattage allows the user to limit the exposure of any specimen to the minimum energy necessary to process the specimen. The patented ColdSpot® technology alleviates inconsistent wattage delivery in the microwave cavity, guarding the specimens from excessive microwave energy.

Versatility and Reproducibility
The versatility of the PELCO BioWave® Pro+ is demonstrated through the diverse Application Kits available for various laboratory procedures. A diverse and well-thought out set of accessories offers a wide range of applications with just one instrument. Accessories designed specifically for each microwave application provide for easy reproducibility.

Internal Load Cooler & Vacuum
The PELCO BioWave® Pro+ is designed as a complete system. For control of the internal environment, the ColdSpot® technology is coupled with an internal Load Cooler and requires no outside instrumentation.
By providing a built-in vacuum pump, no external connections or equipment are necessary.
