PELCO TissueVac system for microwave tissue processing

The PELCO TissueVac Histology Vacuum Accessory is designed for the PELCO BioWave Pro Microwave Processor and can be used in conjunction with the PELCO ColdSpot. It can be used with any of the three vacuum settings on the PELCO BioWave Pro (vacuum cycle, vacuum on W/MW, vacuum on) or without the vacuum function.
The container and lid are made from micro-wave transparent polypropylene. The integrated temperature probe allows the use of temperature restriction conrol with vacuum.
The cassette holder will hold up to 58 standard size plastic cassettes, all in the same orientation and plane. This assures that every tissue sample will see the same microwave conditions. The granite stone is used as a heat receptor during paraffin infiltration.
