Product Description

Histology Consumables

Improve quality, reduce errors, and save time with dedicated plug and play consumables. From glass slides and coverslips to wax and bulk reagents, smooth running of any laboratory depends on a consistent supply of high-quality consumables.
Amongst our range of histology consumables you will be sure to find a cassette especially suited to fill your specific needs when processing regular tissue samples, single and multiple biopsies and also large specimens. Most models can be used with automated labelling machines.
Histology and pathology are sciences that are often used together in biology and medical laboratories. Histology and pathology laboratory equipment are tools that help to prepare and examine tissues.
Microtomes produce thin tissue slices, and tissue processors automatically prepare tissue samples for study, freezing stages quickly and uniformly freezing samples, and cryostats keep them frozen. Thermoconductive platforms keep your sample at a constant temperature, either warm or cold, while transporting or analyzing the specimens. There are automatic slide dryers, stainers, and labelers to help minimize error, time, and expense when preparing slides of the samples. Of course, once samples have been processed and are ready for analysis, microscopes are used to analyze the tissues.

What are the applications of histology?

Histology is a versatile scientific study examining the microanatomy of cells and tissues. The sectioning and staining of the tissues can provide vivid imagery of samples, making it possible for researchers to understand the biological processes of a tissue or cell. Applications of histology include:

  • Aid in disease diagnosis.
  • Medical innovations and discovery.
  • Education and research (ex: Archaeology).
  • Forensic analysis In all these fields, having quick and dependable access to consumables is needed to prepare samples and run a histology report effectively. In many cases, laboratory protocols will call for a large quantity of samples to be tested making it critical to optimize your methods to save time and resources.
