BEEM ® Blocklock ™ Specimen Block Storage System

Safely organize and store specimen blocks with this new Speciman Storage System. These modules incorporate an innovation that allows blocks to snap into cavities specially designed to retain them so they cannot be inadvertently dislodged. Each module has an adhesive backing which, when exposed, permits it to be permanently mounted on any grease-free surface. BlockLocks can be inserted into a protective box (sku: 21622 - 21625) or, by utilizing the adhesive feature, mounted in combination with other BlockLock modules on the mounting panel (sku: 21626).

Starting at: $4.95

Ladd Easy Molds - Size 3

Ladd Easy Molds - Size 3

Available in two sizes: 5.6 and 8mm diameter. The 5.6mm diameter molds corresponds to BEEM capsule size 3 and the 8mm diameter molds corresponds to BEEM capsule size 00. These polyethylene molds make embedding easy and the see-through tips facilitate rapid specimen orientation. Polymerized blocks can be removed by thumb pressure. Easy Molds come as a free-standing stack of 20 embedding compartments which allows free circulation of air and gives even polymerization. For anaerobic embedding resins, the molds are self-stacking, allowing sealing from air. The used molds are convenient for storage of blocks after sectioning. Mold size is 87 x 66mm.

Starting at: $39.95

Micromold

Micromolds

These unitized polyethylene molds have been used quite successfully for holding embedding medium plus specimen material during polymerization prior to ultramicrotomy. Each mold unit makes 10 numbered blocks, 8 mm in diameter, the equivalent of #00 embedding capsules. These blocks have a pyramid-shaped tip 1 mm square, which requires little or no trimming.

Starting at: $11.95

Gelatin Capsules

Gelatin Capsules

An alternative to embedding with Beem Capsules. Can also be used for storing specimens.

Other sizes available upon request.

Starting at: $33.95

UV Compatible Capsule Holders

Embedding Capsule Holder for Size 00 Beem Capsules

Embedding Capsule Holders

Hold embedding capsules upright to produce either pyramidal or flat tip blocks. The twenty-two numbered, nonconstricting cavities in each break-resistant holder can be illuminated from below for accurate specimen orientation. Holders can be stacked in the polymerization oven or on the storage shelf - a real space saver.

Starting at: $15.95

Beem Capsule Press

Beem Capsule Press

For removing 00 standard, bottle neck and conical tip capsules Comes with an adapter for #3 capsules and a wrench to install adapter.

Starting at: $8.00

Cylindrical Tip Embedding Capsule

Cylindrical Tip Embedding Capsules

These capsules have proved of great use to the virologist for encapsulation of virus samples. They have also proved helpful to those microscopists who must examine cross-sections of thin elongated sections of tissue. Care must be exercised when filling these capsules to prevent entrapment of air in the tips. Suitable for centrifugal packing of whole cells. Makes a block that is 8 mm ID x 18 mm high.

Starting at: $13.95

Conical Tip Embedding Capsule

Conical Tip Embedding Capsules

Used seccessfully for embedding very small or thin, elongated pieces of tissue. The shape of these capsules requires that care be exercised when filling them so there will be no air entrapped in the tips. Suitable for centrifugal packing of whole cells. Makes a block that is 7.9 mm OD x 18 mm high.

Starting at: $13.95

Beem Capsules

Beem Capsules

These pre-shaped polyethylene capsules were developed to replace the conventional round-bottomed gelatin capsules with all their attendant problems.

Important advantages are:

1. They produce preformed blocks.

2. Orientation of specimen is facilitated.

3. The plastic does not adhere to the polymerized block, which is readily removed.

4. There is no need to pre-dry these capsules to eliminate moisture, as was too often necessary with gelatin capsules.

 

Size 00 - 8 mm diameter x 20 mm high

Size 3 - 5.6 mm diameter x 14 mm high

Starting at: $10.95

EM5 Complete Embedding Module

Gilder EM5 Embedding Molds
