Laboratory Microwave


SKU: BP Categories: ,


For Post Embedding Processing

The BP-110 is a laboratory grade microwave device operating just like a domestic microwave oven that many histologist use every day. It provides up to 1,000 watts of microwave power, the most common power level of domestic microwaves sold today. Since it operates the same as most household microwaves, you should be able to use your existing protocols.

The BP-110 also meets the new CAP checklist for proper ventilation*

The microwave has a powered cavity ventilation system that can be connected into the house air handling system or to an approved stand alone laboratory air handling system.

Applications and users

Hospitals, histology, pathology and cytology labs of any size using a household microwave should upgrade to this microwave. Anyone using a domestic microwave in the laboratory should be aware that OSHA advises that household microwave ovens do not meet the more stringent door seal and endurance tests required for applications outside of the home.* * Suggested uses (per GP-28-A microwave with “minimal control required”) includes drying slides, melting agar, and staining, and other post embedding processes.
