PIT: Infiltration and polymerisation of Technovit 7200

PIT is a device with various possible uses. If the infiltration times of histological plastics are too short and there is moisture in the specimen, blowholes form and liquid areas remain in the specimen. Without subsequent processing, problems arise during cutting and grinding that no longer permit final processing.

With PIT, these samples can be post-treated by using a vacuum to fill the non-polymerised areas with plastic and later polymerising them with UV or blue light. In addition, the hot plate can also be used to dry samples before bonding. Often, remaining moisture in the sample prevents adhesion. PIT is made of stainless steel and is easy to clean.
