Thermo Electron Shandon Histocentre 3 Embedding Center w/ Cold Plate & Magnifier

From Professional Dealer. Cold Plate & Magnifier.
AdID: 14162

Availability: In stock


Fully-Functional Shandon Embedding Center - Includes Cold Plate, Magnifier, & Footswitch

The Thermo Electron Shandon Histocentre 3 was designed with your convenience
in mind. Featuring programmable routines, you can schedule this embedding
station to be ready to go before you arrive at the lab and start processing
samples immediately.

The Histocentre 3’s touchscreen interface handles not just the embedding center,
but also the cooling plate and integrated forcep heating unit, thus centralizing all instrument controls and allowing for easy operation.

Our Histocentre 3 is in excellent condition and comes packaged with a cold plate, magnifier, and air footswitch. In the words of our technician, this machine is
ready for immediate “plug and play” tissue processing.

Fully Tested, Fully Functional

During the initial testing, a NLS technician found no issues with this embedding
center’s heaters, wax dispenser, or cold plate. The display did malfunction, so
the technician replaced both the display and digitizer with those taken from a
non-functioning Histocentre 3.

He also replaced the lightbulb and repaired a hole in the front panel.
This Histocentre 3 is leaving in better condition than it came.
