BioSette3™ Tissue Cassettes with Plastic Lids

BioSette3™ Tissue Embedding Cassettes, with separate plastic lids, eliminate problems often associated with integral hinged lids. Hinge breakage during shipping and unnecessary sample contact or loss while detaching integral lids can be time consuming and expensive. BioSette3™ lids incorporate a deep, plug seal design to position and lock lids securely on the cassette. This design allows for reopening cassette to reposition sample without premature lid separation.
