Tissue-Tek Prisma® H&E Stain Kit #1

Optimized staining system for higher throughput

The Tissue-Tek Prisma® H&E Stain Kit #1 is the first and only H&E kit specifically designed for the Tissue-Tek Prisma line of stainers. Stain up to 2,500 slides with a throughput of up to 530 slides per hour while maintaining consistent staining quality.

Kit design
The kit specifically designed for the Prisma line of stainers, consists of 6 bottles (1 each hematoxylin and eosin, 2 each differentiator and bluing reagent) which eliminates the need to measure or dilute reagents while maintaining the highest quality stain.  The kit was created to stain up to 2,500 slides or to last for 2 week reducing reagent exchanges while saving time and money.  The bottle design includes a 750 mL fill size matching the ideal volume for standard Prisma solution reservoirs.
Validated protocol
The optimized staining protocol included with the kit means reproducible results that the pathologists demand from the first slide to the last slide.  The perfectly matched Tissue-Tek Prisma H&E Stain Kit is QC-tested that results in lot-to-lot stain consistency.   In order to ensure the highest quality components, only Biological Stain Commission certified dyes are used in the manufacturing process.
Safe and ergonomic bottle
Convenience and user safety were a top priority with the patented, custom-designed bottle.  The ergonomic grips and wide bottle opening makes fast, splash-free filling of the solution reservoir much easier.   The color-coded labels and bottle caps match the colors of the solution configuration of the Tissue-Tek Prisma® Plus and help avoid filling mistakes.
Barcoded for tracking
The kit and its components are barcoded to enable scanning of their lot numbers and expiration dates for convenient documentation.  The new barcode reader on the Prisma Plus stainer enables linking a basket of patient slides to a specific stain kit lot number easier.  Up to 1,000 barcodes can be saved on the Prisma Plus stainer to help comply with laboratory accreditation requirements
Staining System
The combination of Prisma H&E Stain Kit #1 and Prisma Plus Automated Slide Stainer create the fastest throughput of up to 530 slides per hour.   By adding and connecting the Prisma stainer to either a Tissue-Tek Film® or Tissue-Tek® Glas™ g2 coverslipper, creates a true-walkaway system to further increase productivity.  The Prisma Plus open platform provides the ability to run additional PAP, IHC counter­staining, dewaxing, special stains or customized protocols to meet the needs of your laboratory
