The CellCeps+ heated forceps and tampers are electrically heated instruments designed to assist in the orientation and positioning of histological specimens during embedding in paraffin wax. They incorporate safe, low-voltage heating elements which maintain an optimum temperature for manipulation of specimens in histological wax.
Forceps are available in three sizes: 1, 2 and 4mm with a choice of either serrated or smooth jaws. Smooth jaw forceps are ideal for handling fragile tissue specimens which are easily marked, whilst serrated jaws provide a strong grip for manipulating specimens, base moulds and cassettes.
The CellCeps+ range contains three sizes of heated tamper which fit directly onto the CellCeps+ control unit. The largest size of tamper was designed to help specimen embedding for the large Supa Mega Sized specimens. The product range also includes several optional accessories which work in conjunction with the core range and offers users enhanced performance, such as a stand for forceps and tampers when not in use, and extension cables.
