Embedding Media and Adhesives Supplies

EXAKT Technovit 7200 VLC Embedding Media


The first photocuring, one-component resin available for embedding tissue or other samples for the EXAKT Cutting/Grinding Technique. This resin will completely infiltrate both hard and soft tissue and polymerize at temperature below 40° C. It also is compatible with most water-soluble histologic stains.

EXAKT Technovit 7230 VLC Adhesive


Used in conjunction with the EXAKT Technovit 7200, this adhesive is used to glue an already faced sample to the bottom of the embedding mold to preserve the plane parallelism already initiated in sectioning the gross sample.

EXAKT Technovit 7210 VLC Adhesive


The EXAKT Technovit 7210 is a photocuring adhesive that is used together with the Precision Adhesive Press to insure that samples ground on the EXAKT Grinding Systems are presented evenly to the abrasive surface.

EXAKT Technovit 4000 Adhesive


The EXAKT Technovit 4000 is used with the Vacuum Adhesive Press to mount embedded specimens that were faced before embedding. As a thick epoxy it fills in any planar deviations that occur during polymerization.

Microscope Slides and Storage Containers


EXAKT’s Cutting/Grinding Technique is best performed using plastic microscope slides. We provide a variety of these slides for your convenience because many samples are too large to fit on a standard 1″x3″ slide. Our storage containers are also useful for slides that are larger than standard Petrographic Slides. EXAKT storage containers accommodate slides as large as 50 mm x 100 mm (2″ x 4″).
