Tissue-Tek® Glas g2 Glass Coverslipper

Fast and robust glass coverslipping

The Tissue-Tek® Glas™ g2 Glass Coverslipper handles histopathology and cytology slide sections by
reproducing traditional hand coverslipping and ensures accurate coverslip placement, high clarity and bubble free coverage. The Tissue-Tek® Glas™ g2 provides high reliability while delivering up to 400 slides per hour.

The Tissue-Tek® Glas™ g2 utilizes automation that offers the latest technology ensuring that each slide is perfectly coverslipped and clean. Up to 9 customizable programs can be stored that specify different coverslip size, speed and volume of mounting medium to handle different specimen types and applications.

Tissue-Tek® Glas™ g2 Coverslips conveniently preloaded in disposable holders are available in lengths of 40, 50 and 60 mm, which provides users the efficiency needed in any laboratory. Users may manually load glass coverslips in provided reusable holders.

Whether using standalone or connected to the Prisma stainer,  the Tissue-Tek® Glas™ g2 unload carousel holds up to 240 slides, providing on-board storage and minimizing frequency of unloading small batches of coverslipped slides.
