OPTI-WAX Tissue Processor is a automatic linear tissue processor with 12 tanks, which allows to process 150 tissue cassettes in each cycle. Basket is moved through an electro-mechanical arm controlled by a microprocessor from/to different reagent/paraffin tanks. Thanks to its movement across tanks, the instrument offers a bigger homogeneity of consumption and smaller dispersion of reagents and paraffin than traditional processors with single chamber. Moreover the trouble of cleaning reagents management is eliminated.
OPTI-WAX supplied with 12 reagent tanks equipped with covers (9 reagent tanks and 3 heated ones for paraffin with adjustable temperature).
- n. 9 reagent tanks;
- n. 3 paraffin tanks;
- n. 1 basket of 150 tissue cassettes
OPTI-WAX is managed through software. Thanks to user-friendly touch screen panel and LCD display, it is possible to program up to 20 different processing programs. In each program, it is possible to set different immersion and agitation times of basket in each tank. To get out of the problem of contamination among different reagents and paraffin, the instrument keeps, during the passage from a tank to another, basket in a high position for a preset dripping time.
Each program can be set for rapid processing of small samples or, in alternative, on delay modality for night routines or during week-ends.
Programming through touch screen panel is intuitive and it allows setting, step by step, all parameters of each passage of processing protocol in an easy and clear way. Once protocols are programmed, the start up of running is immediate and during processing cycle, the main information are showed on the display so that the user can easily check the status of processing procedures at a glance.
OPTI-WAX processing chamber is made of stainless steel for easier cleaning operations, while the external structure is painted with epoxy resin and its color has been thought to be proper to laboratory environmental.
OPTI-WAX each tank is equipped with a cover with automatic opening during loading and unloading of basket during processing phases. In the meantime the whole chamber, which contains reagents tanks, is equipped with an effective suction system of fumes. Removal or introduction of tanks into the instrument to replace reagents is safe and comfortable.To reduce operator exposure to reagent vapors,
