mPrep/s insertion tool

mPrep/s™ capsules allow users to fix, dehydrate and embed specimens in a single vessel. They can be used in two ways. The first method is to entrap specimens in the bottom of the capsule using the removable, adjustable screen with the hand-held Insertion Tool (85010-03). The second method is to flex the screen open using the mPrep/s™ Workstation* (85010-06). With the screen opened, the user places a specimen in the screen and orients it to the desired position within the capsule. Once the screen closes on the specimen, it is held in place throughout fixation, embedding, and sectioning. No additional embedding molds are required, and the capsule itself easily fits in the microtome chuck. This capsule is highly recommended for transmission and scanning electron microscopy, but can also be used for any sample preparation.

mPrep/s™ capsules are available in storage boxes or in bulk. The hand-held Insertion Tool (85010-03), the Workstation* (85010-06), and additional recommended accessories for use with the mPrep/s™ capsule are located below and at the end of this page.

* The Workstation is required to make use of the orientation feature of the mPrep/s™ screen.
