CPL-FXDR-05S3- CytoPrep Fix & Dry – LW Scientific




CytoPrep Fix & Dry

The LW Scientific CytoPrep is a combination device that safely heat-fixescytologies and quickly dries slides for rapid microscopy results.

Heat-fixing cells onto slides, especially when preparing ear cytologies or drying aurine slide before staining, is the best way to ensure that cells adhere flat onto theglass and fully accept stains with minimum wash-off. The traditional method ofheat-fixing slides with a bunsen burner or lighter is considered too dangerous bymany clinics, because of safety concerns of an open-flame, and is alsoinconsistent because of poor temperature control. Open flames also create blacksoot on the slide which must be wiped off prior to staining. The CytoPrep eliminatesthese concerns with a controlled warm surface that can accommodate up to 5 or 10slides for rapid heat-fixing in as little as 1 minute.

After slides are heat-fixed then stained and rinsed with water, the slides need to drybefore viewing under the microscope. The traditional methods of propping upslides for 15 minutes of air drying or using a hair dryer when the case is urgent andcritical, are inefficient, cumbersome, and cluttered. The CytoPrep can dry up to 5or 10 slides in a minute using a warm gentle air stream, while slides rest in theremovable, washable slide rack. The CytoPrep is the most efficient and convenientcombination cytology prep device available, saving time, saving valuablecounter-space, and improving results in the laboratory
