These cassettes are identical to Series M490 but the anterior writing area has a 45° instead of a 30° angle. The more acute angle makes these cassettes more suitable to be used with some models of cassette labeling instruments.
These disposable plastic cassettes hold tissue specimens very efficiently during the embedding process, as well as in a storage file. Molded from a special high density polymer, these cassettes keep specimens safely submerged in liquid and are totally resistant to the chemical action of histological solvents. The efficient flow-through slots maximize fluid exchange and ensure proper drainage. The one-piece integral lid eliminates the need for separate steel lids. Just snap apart and conveniently lock the lid into the base of the cassette. They can be opened or closed as often as necessary and they always relock securely without danger of specimen loss. Large labeling areas are located on three sides of the cassette for your convenience. Each case contains 3 dispenser boxes of 500 cassettes.
