Electrothermal Paraffin Section Mounting Bath

Category: Tissue Baths

The Paraffin Section Mounting Bath is designed to assist with the handling of paraffin wax samples in histology and pathology laboratories. It is essentially a hot distilled water floating out bath that allows for the meticulous manipulation and location of paraffin wax sections onto glass slides. A white neon light indicates "Power On" and an amber neon light indicates "Heater On".


The required temperature is selected using the heater dial and a nominal temperature of 70°C is typically achieved with 2 litres of water within 120 minutes. Accurate water temperature is then maintained through an energy regulator which supplies power to a silicone rubber mat in controlled timed pulses.


Over-heating of the bath is prevented by a thermal fuse within the heater mat which automatically cuts out at too high a temperature.
