The Block Trimmer Plus efficiently removes excess paraffin from the outside of a tissue cassette following embedding. The edges and writing surface of the tissue cassette are de-waxed effortlessly by pressing the paraffin block onto the patterned heated work surface. The Block Trimmer Plus allows users to prepare tissue blocks with no risk of damage to the printed text or barcode on the tissue cassette. An extra-large heated work surface allows multiple blocks to be pressed across the work surface at one time, significantly improving laboratory workflows. Melted paraffin wax is then collected in a disposable collection pot.
