Embedding Wax

Hurst Scientific is a family-owned business distributing lab equipment and consumables in Australia.

Our mission is to supply high quality laboratory supplies and embedding medium used in scientific disciplines like histopathology, including embedding wax, embedding moulds and embedding cassettes.

Embedding wax is an important part of the tissue embedding process because it gives support to fine structures of tissue samples and biopsy specimens and allows them to be sectioned with ease and accuracy.

As part of the embedding process, wax is poured over tissue samples that have been properly prepared and placed into embedding moulds. The wax provides extra support for the embedding process, allowing the samples to be cut into thin slices. The technician is then able to examine and assess them under a microscope.

Hurst Scientific sells prime tissue embedding wax manufactured by UK brand Hista-Flex, available in a carton of four 2kg bags, or a pallet consisting of 60 cartons.
