Few recommendations concerning how the biopsies should be handled have been published. Performing a large number of biopsies means an increase in the number of containers handled and consequently a technical overload of the transmission network, which occurs without any financial counterpart. A new approach had to be developed in order to increase productivity. Teomics is proud to offer the CoreDish® from Simport, a multi-compartment container, for prostate biopsies.
The CoreDish® is in the shape of a dish measuring only 15 mm high x 95 mm diameter and is half prefilled with 10% Neutral Buffered Formalin. The screw on lid incorporates an O-ring in order to make it leakproof and protect its contents. The CoreDish® conforms to OSHA directives. An area for patient information is provided on the label.
Each compartment is clearly identified to allow proper placement and visualization of the prostate biopsy being inserted. All twelve compartments are labeled: L Base, R Base, L Lateral Base, R Lateral Base, L Lateral Medial, L Medial, R Medial, R Lateral Medial, L Lateral Apex, L Apex, R Apex, R Lateral Apex.
Thanks to the CoreDish® it is not necessary to use a multitude of individual containers, thereby reducing risks of confusion. Made of polystyrene. 10 per case.
Our kit is designed for staining myelin/myelinated axons and Nissil substance on formalin fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue as well as frozen tissue. Our kit is used for identifying the basic neuronal structure in brain or spinal cord sections, and contains a Cresyl Echt Violet counterstain. Using our protocol and the modified formulation, myelinated tissue can be stained in as little as 30 minutes.
The Acid Fast Bacteria (AFB) Stain Kit is intended for use in the histological visualization of Acid Fast Bacteria and Tubercle Bacilli. This kit is a rapid 15-minute procedure. The lipoid capsule of the acid-fast organism takes up carbol fuchsin and resists decolorization.
Acid Fast Organisms: Bright Red
Background: Light Green
These Acid Fast Bacteria (AFB) Animal Control Slides contain sections of positive staining goat intestine and negative staining human lung. The positive control slides are intended to be used to verify histological techniques and reagent reactivity, and are not intended to be used for any quantitative purpose.
Tissues are formaldehyde-fixed, paraffin-embedded, heat dried, and cut at 5 microns unless otherwise specified. Standard tissue placement is mid-range of slide.
