Cole-Parmer® paraffin section flotation bath is designed to assist with the handling of paraffin wax samples in histology and pathology laboratories. It is essentially a hot distilled water floating out bath that allows for the meticulous manipulation and location of sections onto glass slides.
The paraffin section flotation bath has improved heat up times achieving a stable 45°C using 2.25 litres of water within 40 minutes. The stability and accuracy have also been improved due to the change of control which now also allows the user to set the temperature as opposed to the arbitrary power, thereby, reducing the risk of overheating sections.
The paraffin section flotation bath has a PTFE black interior and powder-coated aluminium exterior, which makes it virtually maintenance-free, extremely easy to clean and allows for improved visibility of floating sections.
