Cooling plate YR440

Manufacturer: Kalstein

Certificacion europea


The cooling process is a fundamental step in any histology laboratory, as it is a fundamental procedure for making good quality paraffin block sections. It is almost impossible to make good cuts without doing the cooling process. Using the cooling plates to cool the paraffin blocks creates a drastic improvement and makes cutting much easier. These facts speed up the process and help save time for laboratory operators.

An interesting fact about this process is that cold wax allows the operator to make thinner sections, which will be achieved by supporting the harder elements within the tissue sample. You may be wondering why cooling paraffin blocks makes the process easier. Well, it turns out that when a small amount of moisture from the melted ice gets into the block, the fabric is much easier to cut.

It is a very delicate area in a histology laboratory. Most specialists recommend setting the proper temperature from the cooling plates, in order to cool the paraffin blocks, so that they do not have cracks in the cutting process. When a block of paraffin is completely cracked, it becomes a useless sample.

The cooling plate model we introduce to you is YR440, which is a cryoplate adopted with a new type inverter compressor, which makes the tissue paraffin blocks cool quickly. This model has a Teflon coating, which ensures easy cleaning, so you don’t have to worry about it. We mentioned earlier that it is safer if you can freely adjust the temperature of your cooling plate, and this model gives you that option. The cooling plate we offer you has this option available to prevent the wax on the fabric from getting cold enough or frost breaking.
