Tissue-Tek Prisma® H&E Stain Kit #1

Optimized staining system for higher throughput

The Tissue-Tek Prisma® H&E Stain Kit #1 is the first and only H&E stain kit designed specifically for the Prisma line of stainers. Tracking the identification of kits and their components is made easy on the Tissue-Tek Prisma® Plus Automated Slide Stainer using the Prisma Barcode Reader. The Tissue-Tek Prisma® H&E Stain Kit #1 comes with a validated staining protocol to provide you with slide to slide reproducibility from the first to last slide. The Tissue-Tek Prisma® H&E Stain Kit #1 also comes with an adjustable protocol that you can edit to define your desired stain! Speed up the validation of your H&E protocol and leverage the web-based Prisma Stain Grid service that helps you determine the best matching stain times for hematoxylin and eosin.

All reagents of the Hematoxylin and Eosin Kit come ready-to-use in bottles and eliminate the need to filter, measure or dilute. The Tissue-Tek Prisma® H&E Stain Kit #1 was designed and is produced to maintain the highest quality stain for up to 2,500 slides or 8 days, further reducing reagent exchanges to save your laboratory time and money. The Tissue-Tek Prisma® H&E Stain Kit #1 passes a rigorous QC-test that assures lot-to-lot stain consistency. Only dyes certified by the Biological Stain Commission are used in the manufacturing process, ensuring highest quality components.

This Tissue-Tek Prisma® H&E Stain Kit #1 is specifically filled in 750 mL bottles to provide the exact volume to stain 2,500 slides. The patented bottles are custom-designed for best convenience and highest safety. They provide ergonomic grips and wide bottle opening to reduce spill risk and enable fast and splash-free filling of the solution reservoir. The color-coded labels and caps match the colors of the solution configuration of the Tissue-Tek Prisma® Plus Automated Slide Stainer screen and help you avoid filling and reagent loading errors.

The Hematoxylin & Eosin stain kit and its components are barcoded to enable scanning of their lot numbers and expiration dates for convenient documentation. The new barcode reader enables linking a basket of patient slides to a specific Stain Kit lot number and stain protocol easier. Up to 1,000 barcodes can be saved on the Tissue-Tek Prisma® Plus Automated Slide Stainer to support you complying with laboratory accreditation requirements.

The combination of the Prisma H&E Stain Kit #1 with its factory-validated protocol and the Tissue-Tek Prisma® Plus Automated Slide Stainer create the worldwide fastest throughput of up to 530 slides per hour. Connecting any Prisma stainer with the Tissue-Tek Film® or Tissue-Tek® Glas™ g2 coverslipper, further creates a true-walkaway system that further increases your productivity. The Tissue-Tek Prisma® Plus Automated Slide Stainer open platform provides you with the advantage to run PAP, IHC counter­staining, dewaxing, dehydrating, rehydrating, special stains or customized protocols to meet the needs of your laboratory.
