The Model ERGO-900 cold/hot plate from TECA is a quiet, ergonomic cold/hot plate with a low profile. Designed for laboratory and industrial benchtop use, the plate, at just under 3 inches high, is scaled down for use at individual microtome stations. The low height is well-suited for continuous use in histology labs and other repetitive tasks. Because it is modular, the cold/hot plate can be placed on any benchtop as a plug-and-play product. It can be used with existing paraffin dispensing centers or with individual sectioning stations. The ERGO-900 combines a quiet fan and a Peltier design optimized for high performance.
