A worldwide unique technique
Tissue processing is a technique than uses alcohols to remove water from tissues and replace it with a medium that allows sectioning of tissue. Several methods are used to achieve this. Myr Spin Tissue Processor STP 120 fulfills it in a patented and unique technique that combines several movements for the tissue to achieve perfect infiltration results. This is possible thanks to the world’s best spin processing method.
The basket with the cassettes is immersed into the reagent vessel. In this position, the basket turns at 60 rpm and changes the rotational direction every 60 seconds. The rotational agitation achieves a perfect infiltration of tissue, an homogeneous mixture of the reagents and a reduction of processing time. To get better results, user can start optionally a shaking process.
This movement can be optionally activated on the control panel and allows the basket to perform an up-down movement inside the vessel that combined with the rotational agitation fulfills an helicoidal movement that increases infiltration quality at a high degree of precision. At the end of this process, baskets start centrifuging.
This function is activated as soon as the infiltration time comes to an end. The basket rises above the reagent’s level but rests inside the vessel. For a period of 60 seconds it starts whirling at 210 rpm and changes the rotational direction every 15 seconds. This process allows tissue to be optimally drained and avoids carry-over of reagents from one vessel to another.
Tissue processing achieves by this method almost similar results to those obtained with vacuum system!
Ergonomic control panel
The buttons of the control panel are arranged ergonomically for easy handling. The LCD display shows all the parameters throughout the process, such as programm number, vessel, remaining time, start delay, total duration of the programm, rotational agitation and shaking, basket’s centrifuging, temperature of paraffin baths, date and time.
The instrument has capacity to store up to 10 different programs that can be freely set up by the user. Each one of the programs can be started in immediate or delayed mode, without time limit. The instrument can easily be rotated via the four rollers mounted on the base. This allows the user to have fast and safe access to each one of the vessels.
The individual cover for each one of the vessels reduce the emission of vapors to a minimum. The STP 120-2 and STP 120-3 versions incorporate a fume extraction system that – through a fan and an active charcoal filter – cleanse the vapors before being discharged into the air.
In case of a power shutdown, the specimens are automatically lowered inside the vessel by means of a battery to protect them against dessication and solid paraffins. Once power is restored, the instrument resumes the program at the same point in which it was interrupted. lf it is a long power failure and the paraffin baths become solidified, the safety program will be activated. The instrument will then wait for the baths to be fully liquified before going ahead with the change to the paraffin baths.
Emergency motions can be implemented through the battery, such as moving the basket up and down or station change (as long as the basket is not inside a solidified paraffin bath). Instrument is also equipped with an emergency stop button. It is possible to interrupt a program for reloading or advanced unloading of samples.
Alarms during the process
If the specimens remain inside a station for a longer time than the programmed time, e.g. due to a power failure, the display will show a message indicating the station number and the overtime spent in that station compared with the initially programmed time. The acoustic and visual alarms can easily be identified by the user. The keyboard can be locked by the user to avoid an inadvertent change of the process parameters during operation.

Versatile configuration for enhanced user-friendliness
Clear, user friendly keyboard for easy programming and setup of working parameters. The automatic timer allows energy-saving operation by automatic turning on and off via automatic calculation of the individual pre-heating times.
Storage and Reservoir
Ergonomics and functionality for better processing
storage-reservoir Two storages of large capacity, independently heated, for molds and cassettes. The paraffin reservoir has a capacity of 5 liters to guarantee continuous operation even at high specimen capacity. Surplus paraffin is guided into waste drawers, easily accessible from the front side, that can easily be emptied.
•Large cooling surface for up to 60 cassettes/molds. •Selectable temperature between 0 and -12º C. •Steady temperature distribution over the entire surface. •Allow placement on the right or left side of dispensing console. •Stand-alone operation possible.
•Accepts baskets from any common tissue processor. •Cassette storage of huge capacity, featuring two removable trays with capacity for two baskets (200 cassettes) or 3 baskets ( 300 cassettes) without trays. •High profile cover for cassette storage. •Mold storage with capacity for more than 300 molds. •Operation only possible if connected to embedding console
Dispensing console EC 350-1: Easy operation by perfect ergonomy
The ergonomical arrangement of two large trays, which can be heated independently of each other, for the storage of cassettes and molds allows a flexible working method. centro_inclusion_tejidos_modular_ec-350_recorte-720p_caratula-completa A clearly and logically arranged operating panel allows for an easy programming of the working times and temperatures.The temperatures for the cryo console are also determined via this operating panel. It also can be controlled via the integrated timer. An illuminated, two-line display with adjustable contrast informs on the current temperatures as well as current time and date (five different languages can be selected, temperature indication optionally in Celsius or Fahrenheit).
A spacious, heated working area with a non-glare illumination and a swiveling large field magnifier allow fast, ergonomic operation. The paraffin flow can be released manually as well as via footswitch. The flow rate can be set continuously. A cooling spot, which is integrated into the working surface, in close vicinity to the paraffin nozzle offers a simple and fast specimen orientation while processing with short movements.Six independently heated holes for forceps offer comfortable manipulation of cable-free standard forceps. Optional electrically heated forceps are available.
Saving energy by automatic timer operation
The automatic timer allows energy-saving operation by automatic turning on and off via automatic calculation of the individual pre-heating times. The user only programs the desired operating times, everything else is done by the instrument itself.
In doing so, weekends and, if necessary, holydays are automatically exempt from the automatic turning on, to optimize the durability of the stored paraffin.
Non-tiring working by improved operating comfort
The heated working surfaces are thermically insulated towards the operator and ergonomically shaped. Surplus paraffin is guided into waste drawers via two channels. These drawers are easily accessible from the front side and can easily be emptied.
More than 25 years devoted to histology. This is the history of Especialidades Médicas Myr as manufacturer of Anatomical Pathology instruments. Our embedding center, cold plate, slide staining and tissue processor meet expectations of modern labs.
