Tissue Processing

Download PDF Brochure

With the Leica EM TP tissues can be processed into resin for subsequent EM and LM analysis. The Tissue Processor has an exhaust system allowing safe use of toxic substances such as osmium. Individual seals reduce evaporation of reagents while the preheat/cool system allows the correct reagent temperature to be maintained throughout processing. Small vials are available for EM and larger ones for LM processing. The larger vials can also be used for high throughput EM-runs, utilising the Tripod system, where over 150 EM samples can be processed in one run.
