The Tissue-Tek® TEC™ Series has been the Histology laboratory’s preferred choice in embedding for decades.
The Tissue-Tek® TEC™ 6 Embedding Console System continues that tradition while further enhancing the reliability, comfort, and ease-of-use that users have come to know and expect. Designed to be the ideal tissue embedder for laboratories of any size, the robust and ergonomic modular system offers a streamlined, adjustable workflow that is both comfortable and simple-to-use for any user.
With the Tissue-Tek TEC 6, you are in control of your embedding experience. The color touchscreen and easy-to-navigate onscreen controls allow for easy setup and operation, and the graphical user interface enables you to set and display temperatures in all of the heated and cooled areas with just a touch. The brightness of the LED work light can be adjusted directly from the main screen to improve specimen visibility and eliminate the clutter of external lamps. The instrument is also always ready when you are with the user-programmable scheduler that automatically readies or shuts down both the Embedding and Cryo Modules by day of the week and even across overnight shifts.
The Tissue-Tek TEC 6 also provides additional, customizable comfort to a normally repetitive and uncomfortable task. The modular system allows the unit to be set up for either right- or left-handed operation. Ergonomic, padded wrist rests are removable to provide added support and comfort when needed. Anti-glare, coated work surfaces reduce eye strain and provide better visual identification of tissues, and the adjustable LED work light can be dimmed or brightened according to your preference.
In addition to control and comfort, the Tissue-Tek TEC 6 includes all of the necessary features to make tissue embedding and maintenance safe, comfortable and simple to use. The software-driven Clean Mode provides an easy method for cleaning the forceps wells, reducing opportunities for cross contamination of tissue blocks. The large warming surface offers an extended working area for plenty of space, and the large, nylon surface of the Cryo Module has raised edges to contain moisture and provides ample space for up to 60 embedded blocks.
