Working Area

Innovative design and functionality for flexible working methods

The heated working surfaces are thermally insulated towards the operator and ergonomically shaped. Spacious, heated working area with a non-glare white LED illumination with adjustable intensity.

Adjustable paraffin dispenser paddle to accommodate Mega and Super Megacassettes. Built-in wax trimmer. Urgent biopsies can be embedded at any time even in “standby mode”.


Control Panel

Versatile configuration for enhanced user-friendliness

Clear, user-friendly keyboard for easy programming and setup of working parameters. An energy-saving function is incorporated,
using an automatic timer that turns on/off via calculations based on the individual pre-heating times.

Storage and Reservoir

Ergonomics and functionality for better processing

storage-reservoir Two storages of large capacity, independently heated, for molds and cassettes. The paraffin reservoir has a capacity of 5 liters to ensure continuous operation during high workflow. Surplus paraffin is guided into waste drawers, easily accessible from the front side, which can easily be emptied.
