Introducing the PELCO BioWave Pro. Microwave tissue processing technology, pioneered by Ted Pella, Inc. over the last decade, has evolved into the new BioWave Pro system, offering a superior level of control and ease of operation. True variable wattage control and the unique PELCO ColdSpot are now complemented by an intuitive and intelligent touch screen control panel. The unprecedented level of precise and extensive control delivers consistent quality tissue processing results. Protocol programming and development is right at your fingertips and offers true ease of operation. Remote access allows protocol monitoring from your desk and has improved serviceability of the unit to a new standard. With the BioWave Pro, superior results from microwave to microscope have never been easier.
The PELCO BioWave Pro comes with:
Pelgraph temperature monitoring software, temperature probe and stand, exhaust connectors and tubing, 2 quick-disconnect fittings, manual, safety instructions, warranty card.
Five Application kits deliver excellent results from microwave to microscope:
- EM tissue processing
- Formaldehyde fixation and EDTA decalcification
- Paraffin tissue processing
- Confocal microscopy and in situ hybridisation
EM tissue processing kit includes:
PELCO ColdSpot, microwave vacuum chamber, PELCO Prep-Eze 6 and 12-well kit, microwave microcentrifuge tube holder, microwave polymerisation tray, bubbler probe.

Benefits of the PELCO BioWave Pro system
Superior microwave processing control
The combination of true power and temperature control has resulted in superior control of the microwave environment giving superior results. The power setting is now fully selectable from 90 - 750 Watts.
Unrivalled application flexibility
The PELCO BioWave Pro can be easily optimised for specific needs like EM tissue processing, immunolabeling, decalcification, fixation, etc., with a range of available application kits.
Enhanced protocol management
Pre-programmed protocols are supplied with the system, a full set of tools for editing, programming and copying enables creating and storing of specific protocols.
True ease of operation
Touch screen operation facilitates straightforward and intuitive operation of the PELCO BioWave Pro while current settings are directly visible.
Consistent quality results
By taking extensive control of all microwave environment parameters, consistent and high quality results are readily achieved.
Precision sample temperature control
The PELCO ColdSpot unit combined with a choice of cooling systems takes away the heating factor, therefore taking full advantage of the microwave effect.
- Self-calibrated wattage control
- Fully selectable continuous power levels from 90-750 watts
- Safety exhaust vent
- Attaches to any PC with Windows
- Touch screen with modifiable presets
- Air bubbler
- Precision sample temperature control
- Enhanced protocol management
