Intended use
The Banking-Seal/Card can block exposure to air, and prevent the deactivation of molecules for a long term. When banking your tissue you are able to keep it in the same state as the sliced specimen.

It is also useful for the production of a bank and tissue array of collected tissues from plural facilities.

Additionally, you can use this when a block cannot but thin-sliced specimen can be taken out.
Banking-Seal/Card Set.

Paraffin-embedded block.


[1] Issued an aspect of a paraffin-embedded block ※1

Put the Banking-Seal torn off from a mount on the surface.

Put the center of the Banking-Seal to the tissue, and stick it firmly trying to prevent even a little
air bubble from getting between the tissue and the Banking-Seal. It is easier to thin-slice if put
the margin of it on the corner that hits the handle portion to the first blade of a microtome.

[2] Set a microtome on the thickness 100 to 200 um, and then slice as usual. ※2

If you warm the block slightly the section will derive from the microtome blade easier.

A sliced specimen will be sliced out clinging to the Banking-Seal. (fig1), (fig2)

[3] Stick the Banking-Seal with sliced specimen to theBanking-Card. ※3 (fig3)

[4] Fill in the tissue information on the Banking-Card, and put a bar cord (of your facility) if needed.

This can make it easier to connect it to the clinical pathological information. (fig4)

[5] Place the Banking-Seal and Card into a sealed bag.

Preferably keep them in refrigeration storage.

Try to avoid high temperature and humidity.


Do not use for other purposes.

Do not use for frozen specimen.

When making re-embedding paraffinblocks, use the Transfer-Seal.

Avoid water because it will make the adhesiveness of the Banking-Seal to the Banking-Card

Avoid hot and humid place because it might make it difficult to detach the Banking-Seal.

When punching, be careful about contaminations.
