The mPrep System is the right choice

 

The mPrep™ System uses mPrep capsules to prepare specimens and grids for electron microscopy and other applications.

The programmable ASP-1000 Auto Specimen Processor provides “walk-away” preparation of specimens and grids with any protocol.

mPrep capsules also connect to lab pipettors for convenient processing in any lab.

Expands lab capabilities

  • Automated “walk away” rapid tissue processing
  • Automated immuno-gold labeling
  • Adaptable and flexible
  • Reproducible results

Solves common problems

  • System efficiency reduces tedium
  • Orient specimens in seconds
  • Protect samples from damage and contamination
  • Minimize human touches

Adapts to unique challenges

  • Prepare serial block face SEM specimens in a day, instead of a week
  • Automatic overnight on-grid and pre-embedding immunogold labeling
  • Consistently prepare pathogenic viruses in BSL3/4 biocontainment

The mPrep System

 

mPrep ASP-1000 Automated Specimen Processor

Uncompromised automated biological specimen and grid preparation – virtually any protocol.

 

Walk-away preparation of specimens for TEM and 3DEM using mPrep/s specimen capsules.

 

Walk-away immuno-labeling, both pre-embedding and post-embedding.


mPrep/s capsules

mPrep/s capsules entrap specimens for TEM, SEM, 3DEM, and other applications. Capsules hold specimens through fixation, en bloc staining, embedding, and even sectioning.

 

mPrep Workstation orients specimens in mPrep/s capsules – streamlines workflow from dissection to reagent processing.

 

Encapsulated specimens are protected from loss, misidentification and damage.


mPrep/g capsules

mPrep/g capsules hold TEM grids for immuno-labeling, on-grid processing, and storage. Protects grids from misidentification, loss, and damage.

 

Grids may require handling only twice: when inserted into capsules and when placed in the TEM. Grid-Tite™ slots keep grids safe even if an open capsule is dropped.

 

Reagent consumption is as little as 20 μl per grid.  You may never lose or damage a grid again.
