Cargille Tissue Files

Histological Embedment Block Cataloging & Storage System

The routine cataloging and storage of embedment blocks in a protecting system is crucial. The very importance of embedment blocks dictates the need for positive identification and easy retrieval. Space is an equally important consideration because of the large number of embedment blocks routinely prepared. The Cargille Tissue File System incorporates the necessary features for embedment block protection, simplified cataloging, reduction of filing error, and facilitation of retrieval - all in minimal space and attractive cost.

Cargille Tissue Files contain 100 partitioned compartments arranged 10 deep and 10 across. Each compartment is 3.8 x 2.5 x 5.7 cm and will generally hold all the blocks related to a single case. By removing alternate partitions, each compartment may also be doubled or quadrupled in size. For other storage needs, the partitions may be removed.

For cataloging, each compartment is numerically indexed on a permanent chart inside the lid which also provides space for identification and other information. A card and holder on the front provides a large area for instant identification of the contents, avoiding tedious and time consuming searching.

Cargille Tissue Files are designed to provide maximum storage capacity in minimum space. They are durable for repeated use, deep-freeze applications, and stacking in cabinets or side-by-side storage in drawers.

Cargille Tissue Files are solid fiberboard with a protective, attractive, scuff-resistant exterior green covering. The reinforced, hinged lid conveniently lifts open from the front exposing the compartment-indexed chart. A cloth stay supports the lid in the open position for easy embedment block insertion and retrieval. Interior storage compartments are smooth and white, imparting contrast and cleanliness. Open stock assures immediate expansion and low cost makes it practical.
