This version of Simport's Micromesh™ offers 1676 square openings (0.38mm), allowing for a greatly improved fluid exchange without having to use biopsy pads. Large anterior and posterior slots in both cassette and cover ensure that the Micromesh™ biopsy cassette will sink rapidly. A large square compartment measuring 27mm is perfect even for needle biopsies. The cover does not protrude above the cassette, a great space saving feature allowing more cassettes to be stacked in automatic labeling machines and tissue processors.
Molded from a special high density polymer, these patented cassettes keep specimens safely submerged in liquid and are totally resistant to the chemical action of histological solvents. The Micromesh™ ensures efficient fluid exchange and drainage. The one-piece integral lid eliminates the need for separate steel lids. They can be opened and 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 cassettes. Anterior writing area is at a 45° angle to make the cassette more suitable to be used with automated cassette printers. Patent pending. Available in non-cytotoxic, non-metallic colors.
Each case contains four dispenser boxes of 250 cassettes with covers assembled.
