Embedding & polymerization unit
For improved resin infiltration of chemically fixed or high pressure frozen and freeze substituted samples, the evaporation-controlled automated embedding and polymerization unit EMS poly III is available. Instead of taking the samples from pure solvent to pure resin through a series of solvent-resin-mixtures with increasing resin concentrations, the resin is concentrated by evaporating the solvent from a solvent-resin mixture. This reduces solvent and resin use and minimizes exposure to hazardous chemicals. The processing chambers accommodates up to 52 BEEM specimen vials but can also be used in combination with flat embedding molds.
