An important prerequisite for easy-to-cut specimens is a mold with a special profile which will provide specimen blocks for easy application and simple cutting. This is achieved with Histoform S, an embedding mold composed of new material with a special shape.
- All essential requirements such as:
- Material-saving volume
- Easy-to-cut shape
- Unlimited shelf life
- Easy removal of the embedded specimens because of the conical shape and the Teflon material
- Excellent temperature dissipation by way of refined steel bottom
- Accurate and easy fixing of the specimen blocks byspecial grooves were achieved with Histoform S, in cooperation with renowned users.
Curing temperature measurements have confirmed that at this volume the combination of Teflon and refined steel will result in a considerably lower polymerisation temperature.
Histoform Q was developed for the embedding of larger specimens; the characteristics are identical to Histoform S.
