The Leica EG1150H heated embedding module is equipped with a 3 l paraffin reservoir.

All functions of the EG1150H are controlled through the easy to read LED display, including temperature settings for left and right hand warming trays, paraffin reservoir, and working surface. Work days and times can be programmed for automatic instrument operation.

With the especially smooth running height adjustable and rotary dispenser clip, paraffin can either be dispensed manually or by pushing the embedding mold against the clip. When working with large embedding molds, the clip folds backwards and the paraffin can be activated by using the optional foot switch.

Cassette and mold warming trays are interchangeable to accommodate changes in embedding workflow.

The large working surface area with a robust finish allows to set out multiple cassettes and molds in preparation for embedding greatly improving the specimen throughput. Rounded arm rests provide a comfortable working position.
