Use of toxic and hazardous solvents is a growing concern the world over. The idea to use harmless CO2 to eliminate all of these solvents, originated in the laboratory of the University Medical Centre Groningen. Tispa Medical successfully converted the idea to a new tissue processor that sets the new standard. Ethanol, CO2, paraffin – that’s it, that’s all.
The CO2 we use is exactly the same CO2 that is used to carbonate your coke and to increase the shelf life of the food you buy in the supermarket. CO2 is odorless, non-toxic and abundantly available.
