General Data Flotation Work Station TFB-L

The General Data Flotation Work Station TFB-L is a heated water bath used to soften and flatten tissue specimens before attaching them to microscope slides for histological processing.

This particular device is a “smart” water bath, in that is has microprocessor-controlled temperature regulation, which precisely regulates the water temperature anywhere from ambient to 65 C. The precise control prevents tissue imperfections such as cracking and layer separation that can result from temperature fluctuation.

The General Data Flotation Work Station TFB-L has a bright, energy efficient LED light array that provides significantly more visibility than conventional water baths. The light array is strategically positioned on the side of the device (not facing the technician) so there is maximum light on the ribbons, yet minimal glare toward the technician’s eyes. The side position of the LED light array along with the high-contrast black background works well to provide the best possible visibility.

The low profile design of the device provides user-comfort by reducing fatigue, and also positively addresses repetitive motion syndrome. The 11″l x 8″w x 2 1/4″d rectangular glass dish enables easy ribbon floating and enhanced section pickup.

Cleaning the TFB-L float bath is a very easy task after removing the glass dish from the device. The chemical-resistant plastic housing is easily accessible and is built to stand up to frequent cleaning.

The General Data Flotation Work Station TFB-L does not come with a HISTO/Orientator pad or heated slide drying area.

Optional Accessories:

Front slide drying rack – FDR-FL

Side slide drying rack – SDR-FL
