The embedding workstation at FMC is an ergonomically designed, precision engineered, tissue embedding system, comprising two temperature controlled modules. The embedding module includes a base mold storage compartment, a wax reservoir, a tissue storage tank, a wax dispenser and a para trimmer.
The temperature of various elements can be set using the built-in touchscreen user interface. The device can be used with either heated or un-heated forceps. The cold module consists of a temperature regulated cold plate, which can be linked to the embedding module or used independently. This workstation reduces fatigue and potential errors common when using other uncomfortable, hot or poorly illuminated embedding centres.
