Empty gelatin capsules have many uses around a microscopy laboratory and are often times perceived as a lower cost alternative to BEEM® capsules. These small empty gelatin capsules are a handy and economical alternative to BEEM capsules. Use these pharmaceutical grade, hard capsules as an embedding mold when very small volumes are being used and/or when light transmission is needed. When ready for removal, the embedment can be separated from the gelatin capsule by dissolution.
These empty gelatin capsules can be used as a low volume embedding mold for embedding resins, something especially valuable for those embedding resins that are on the expensive side of the norm. And of course they are transparent to both visible and UV light, so that they can be used with resins such as SPI-Chem™ Low Acid GMA,Lowicryl™, LR White™, and Unicryl™.
