Shandon HistoCentre 2

The Shandon HistoCentre 2 Embedding Center is a sizeable work area which provides easy embedding of histological specimens. It is equipped with a well-lit multi-position magnifier for precise orientation when encasing specimens in paraffin, and ergonomically-designed controls for convenient operation and improved throughput. Additionally, the Shandon HistoCentre 2 features a large heated storage area suitable for all types of base molds.

The 5.2 liter paraffin tank of the HistoCentre 2 is the largest in the industry. Its equally large cold plate can efficiently store up to 60 blocks, and its cassette area can hold up to 200 cassettes. Moreover, the HistoCentre 2 work area is especially designed to prevent wax penetration and has a wax flow rate which is precisely attuned with the dispenser jet.

paraffin tank dispenser
The paraffin holding tank/dispenser will not heat to 60C to melt the paraffin. The temperature control can be set to 60+C but remains at room temperature. We are looking for instructions to replace the heating &/or thermocouple elementReply
