The Accu-Edge® Grossing Tools System will allow you to consistently and easily obtain tissue samples that have a controlled and uniform thickness.
This method of standardised grossing enables consistent quality in tissue processing.
Accu-Edge® Grossing Tools offer you:
Consistent and standardised grossing, resulting in the best processing results
Tools are easy to clean and decontaminate, minimising risk of contamination by the tissue
Accu-Edge® Grossing Board Accu-Edge® Grossing Boards are working surfaces with easily adjustable wells that allow tissue thickness and size to be standardised. The wells can be individually adjusted from 1.5 mm to 3.0 mm. Accu-Edge® Grossing Boards can be used as a stand-alone grossing area or on your current grossing bench.
With Accu-Edge® Grossing Boards, you are just a few steps away from the perfect sample:
Calibrate the well at the required depth
Position the tissue in the well
Place the tamper on the tissue
Gross it at the desired thickness
Accu-Edge® Grossing Forks While the Accu-Edge® Grossing Board facilitates the sampling of solid organs and tumours, some types of tissue are not amenable for its use. Therefore, Sakura developed the Accu-Edge® Grossing Forks. The Accu-Edge® Grossing Forks are available in three thickness sizes: 1.5 mm, 2.0 mm and 2.5 mm.
With the Accu-Edge® Grossing Forks the tissue is held in place while sliding the blade against the outer surfaces, resulting in a section of the desired thickness in the gap between the tines.
