Consistent, high-quality paraffin for processing and embedding

The unique composition of Tissue-Tek VIP® Paraffin allows for reduced compression sections as thin as 2 microns. The low melting point, 56°C, protects samples from heat damage. The paraffin will not discolor under normal processing conditions and leaves no plasticizer residue to clog paraffin lines in tissue processors and embedding centers. Tissue-Tek VIP Paraffin is supplied in small pellets for rapid melting.

Tissue-Tek® Paraform® Processing/Embedding Medium is a 3rd generation formulation designed for use with the Tissue-Tek AutoTEC® a120 Automated Embedding System for the fast, continuous and predictable embedding of blocks.  The paraffin is designed as both a processing and embedding medium to cover all of the laboratory’s needs, with the same additional features as the Tissue-Tek VIP Paraffin.
