The Leica EG1160 is a paraffin embedding station. Compact and easy to use, the EG1160 embedding system uses an integrated filter to ensure constant, reproducible paraffin flow at ten different flow rate settings. All instrument functions, including the automatic starting time, are individually programmable at just the press of a button. Large and temperature-controlled hand rest areas give the user maximum freedom of movement.

The Leica EG1160 embedding station offers a multi-lingual software, and allows temperature programming for paraffin reservoir, cassette bath, mold warmer and work surface. The station also gives the operator the flexibility to program work day, work starting time, work end time, real time and day of the week.

The separately-heated paraffin dispensing system of the Leica EG1160 with integrated filter ensures constant, reproducible flow, with ten flow rate settings. Paraffin dispensing can be activated manually, via foot switch or paraffin mold handle. To facilitate filling of large molds the dispensing handle may be retracted. The refrigeration spot being integrated in the cold plate ensures uniformly low temperatures.
