A fast and robust glass coverslipper

Elevate traditional glass coverslipping with the Tissue-Tek® Glas™ g2 Glass Coverslipper handles histopathology and cytology slide sections by reproducing traditional hand coverslipping and ensuring accurate coverslip placement, high clarity and bubble free coverage. This automated glass coverslipper has one of the highest levels of reliability and low maintenance on the market while delivering up to 400 slides per hour.  

The Tissue-Tek Glas g2 Glass Coverslipper utilizes automation that offers the latest technology ensuring that each slide is perfectly coverslipped and clean. Up to 9 customizable programs can be stored that specify different coverslip size, speed and volume of mounting medium to handle different specimen types and applications.  Make on-the-fly changes to the volume of mounting medium and coverslipping speed without interruption of the coverslipping process.

Tissue-Tek Glas g2 Coverslips conveniently preloaded in disposable holders are available in lengths of 40, 50 and 60 mm, providing you the efficiency needed in your laboratory. Avoid the inconvenience of trying not to break coverslips when transferring them to a reusable holder. 

Connect the Tissue-Tek Glas g2 Glass Coverslipper to the Tissue-Tek Prisma Plus stainer to create an integrated, fully automated walkaway staining process from slide baking to slide drying.  This solution further increases your laboratory's productivity. When connected, additional baskets with IHC and/or special stains can be independently coverslipped while the stainer is running at the same high speed.  The Tissue-Tek Glas g2 Glass Coverslipper unload carousel holds up to 240 slides, also providing on-board storage and minimizing frequency of unloading small batches of coverslipped slides.
