Tissue-Tek Film® Automated Coverslipper – The clear choice

The Sakura Tissue-Tek Film® Coverslipper is the fastest and only film coverslipper in the world capable of connecting to the Sakura Tissue-Tek Prisma® Plus stainer to increase laboratory productivity. With over 3 billion slides coverslipped with our xylene activated adhesive-backed Sakura Tissue-Tek® Coverslipping Film, now in its 5th generation, the Film Coverslipper is the clear choice for laboratories worldwide for over 30 years.

The Sakura Tissue-Tek Film® Coverslipper’s unprecedented throughput of 1,080 slides per hour remains unmatched. The Coverslipping Film’s fast drying time minimizes the long wait time to air-dry trays of glass coverslipped slides. This results in users providing clean high quality dried slides to the pathologists faster.

Whether standalone or connected to the Prisma stainer, the Film Coverslipper’s unload carousel holds up to 240 slides, providing on-board storage and minimizing frequency of unloading small batches of coverslipped slides.

Connecting the Tissue-Tek Film® Coverslipper to the Tissue-Tek Prisma® Plus stainer creates an integrated, fully automated walkaway staining process from slide baking to slide drying.
