SPI Cure Embedment Heater
The SPI CURE™ is a dry block heater designed for the curing of various EM embedding resin systems. The unit is ideal for the preparation of small batches of plastic-/resin-embedded specimens for Electron or Light Microscopy.
The system comes with a standard aluminum heating block 1.5 snap-cap conical tubes. Using precise controlled temperatures ranges of up to 80°C, the dual heaters (upper and lower) provides a consistent temperature and provides a safe environment for the polymerization of LR White (acrylic) and SPI Pon (epoxy) resins.
SPI Sure can be used with both protected and unprotected BEEM capsules as well as 00-gelatin capsules. It is a personal sized instrument that fits in the palm of your hand. A large, backlit display is used to control temperature up to 80°C.
The SPI Cure takes the place of large ovens that tend to not provide uniform heating. The small size allows easy storage and transport, enabling the use of a fume hood if needed for a particular resin. The SPI Cure provides a ‘greener’ energy signature for this part of specimen preparation.
