Spin Tissue Processor STP 120
STP 120 uses a patented technique that combines rotational agitation, shaking and centrifuging in order to achieve excellent infiltration results.
This is possible thanks to the world’s best spin processing method.
Rotational Agitation→ The basket turns horizontally at 60 rpm and changes the rotational direction every 60 seconds. The rotational agitation achieves a perfect infiltration of tissue, an homogeneous mixture of the reagents and a reduction of processing time.
Shaking→ It can be optionally activated and allows the basket to perform an up-down movement inside the vessel that combined with the rotational agitation fulfills an helicoidal movement that increases infiltration quality
Centrifuging→ The rotation of cassette basket at 120 rpm for a period of 60-180 seconds (inside the reagent vessel but over the reagent level) changing direction every 15 seconds, to minimize carry-over of reagents and allowing tissue to be optimally drained.
Air Quality → Models -1, and -2 have a charcoal filter fume extraction system, that cleanse the vapors before being discharged into the air.
√ Comes in 3 versions; STP120-1, STP120-2 and STP120-3. Both STP120-2 and STP120-3 incorporate a fume extraction system
√ Battery back-up system in case of power failure. Avoid potential dry up of tissues. In case of power failure basket will be immersed in vessel.
√ Adaptor for general lab extractor system available.
