The Mini Section Dryer is an innovative small footprint section dryer, designed for use at the microtome for improved LEAN workflow. Air at a digitally controlled temperature is blown through the base of the instrument for rapid and efficient section drying without the risk of overheating the specimen. Through this process, drying times can be reduced by approximately 75% when compared to conventional ovens.

A large chamber has space for up to 6 slide racks (30 slide capacity), which can be inspected at any time through a transparent lid. Innovative resistance hinges on the lid allows users to easily position it at an angle. This allows both hands to be used when placing or removing items from the dryer.

The optional LEAN Timer system and identifier rack ensures that each slide rack has an exact drying time and provides both an audible and visual indication to users when a slide rack has fully completed drying.

  • Fan assisted heating reduces section drying time to approximately 10 minutes, compared to 35-40 minutes when using conventional ovens.

  • Optional LEAN Timer System and LEAN identifier rack ensures that each rack has the exact drying time.

  • Small footprint takes up minimal space in the laboratory.

  • Ultra fast heating system for rapid warm up.

  • Large high capacity chamber with space for up to four automated staining instrument slide racks (each rack with 30 slide capacity) including rack hanger/handle.

  • Clear door allows visualisation of the contents of the chamber.

  • Innovative up and over door feature allows users to slide the section dryer door out of the way to provide better access to the section dryer cavity.
