Sakura Tec 5

The Sakura Tissue-Tek TEC 5 embedding center provides a compact, single workstation that enables both specimen orientation and paraffin embedding. It can be customized to user preferences by placing the TEC 5 modules in a left-to-right or right-to-left arrangement for optimal workflow.


Other features that optimize operations include a finger touch plate for precise control of paraffin flow, a dispensing tower knob to adjust the flow rate to specific tasks, and an automatic ON/OFF switch that allows manual override for greater flexibility.The Sakura Tissue-Tek TEC 5 embedding center also offers other advantages for heightened performance such as, a temperature control over key areas for uniform regulation (all heated areas can be adjusted from 50°C to 75°C in 1°C increments; the cryo module plate from -10°C to 0°C in 1°C increments), individual temperature control for left and right thermal storage compartments that allows use as either paraffin baths or warming caddies for base molds, and an efficient cooling system to maintain temperature levels even when the plate is full.

The Sakura Tissue-Tek TEC 5 embedding center uses an environmentally safe refrigerant and has a quiet compressor to reduce noise fatigue.

Additionally, there are six easy-to-reach forceps wells, an ample chilling area for approximately 60 specimen blocks, a panel display of temperatures for all heated and cooled areas, and easy-to-clean surfaces with no hidden corners to catch paraffin or debris.
