Any histology lab must have paraffin wax in order to accomplish the sectioning process so that the lab operator is able to see the samples through a microscope. It is common to have a paraffin dispenser in this type of laboratory, due to the importance of this consumable. Tissue processing is one of the most delicate techniques inside any kind of laboratory. You need to be aware of many details and the process must be very precise.
Paraffin wax is useful to impregnate tissue prior to sectioning thin samples of tissue. The process begins when the water is removed from tissue through ascending strengths of alcohol and the tissue is cleared in an organic solvent such as xylene. After this, the tissue is placed in paraffin wax for a number of hours and then set in a mold with wax to cool and solidify. The final process is when you cut the sections on a microtome. The paraffin trimmer removes the excess paraffin from embedding cassettes safely and with ease by sliding it across the heated surface. The melted paraffin drains into the removable catch basin below without making a mess of paraffin shavings.
Paraffin dispenser uses
This device is a very common tool inside a histology lab because it melts and dispenses the paraffin. The use of this paraffin dispenser is for research, instruction and experiments in universities or technical secondary schools. About this device’s safety, we recommend that when is on; keep the surrounding area clear while you are operating it. You should also keep in mind that you cannot use any flammable and explosive materials, strong chemical materials nor any toxic or radioactive materials.
