Sakura Accu-Edge® Grossing Tools
Specially developed to ensure consistent, uniform grossing results, the Accu-Edge® grossing tools include a specially designed grossing board available in two sizes, standard and large. Featuring two adjustable wells that ensure grossing to an exact thickness, this board enables complete standardization of the grossing process. Integrated rulers on either side of the board also enable gross measurement of specimens.
In addition, Accu-Edge® trimming knives and scalpel blades provide the sharp cuts necessary for these exact grossing techniques. And new tissue tampers help maintain a firm hold on specimens while making horizontal cuts. The Accu-Edge® product line also includes three grossing forks designed to hold specimens such as skin, arteries, colon, and any specimens with layers during grossing, while maintaining perfect specimen form. Each fork is designed with two sets of sharp tines, separated by a space measuring 1.5, 2.0, or 2.5 mm. Cuts are made on the outer sides of the fork for precise results
• Accu-Edge® trimming knives are used for grossing larger specimens using the large well on the grossing board
• Accu-Edge® scalpel knives can be used for sectioning smaller specimens or trimming tissue while using grossing forks
