Purpose: The Banking-Seal/Card can block exposure to air, and prevent the deactivation of molecules for a long term. When banking your tissue you are able to keep it in the same state as the sliced specimen.
It is also useful for the production of a bank and tissue array of collected tissues from plural facilities.
Additionally, you can use this when a block cannot but thin-sliced specimen can be taken out.
component: Banking-Seal/Card Set.
Paraffin-embedded block.


[1] Issued an aspect of a paraffin-embedded block 1
Put the Banking-Seal torn off from a mount on the surface.
Put the center of the Banking-Seal to the tissue, and stick it firmly trying to prevent even a little air bubble from getting between the tissue and the Banking-Seal. It is easier to thin-slice if put the margin of it on the corner that hits the handle portion to the first blade of a microtome.
[2] Set a microtome on the thickness 100 to 200 um, and then slice as usual. 2
If you warm the block slightly the section will derive from the microtome blade easier.
A sliced specimen will be sliced out clinging to the Banking-Seal. (fig1), (fig2)
[3] Stick the Banking-Seal with sliced specimen to theBanking-Card. 3 (fig3)
[4] Fill in the tissue information on the Banking-Card, and put a bar cord (of your facility) if needed.
This can make it easier to connect it to the clinical pathological information. (fig4)
[5] Place the Banking-Seal and Card into a sealed bag.
Preferably keep them in refrigeration storage.
Try to avoid high temperature and humidity.
Do not use for other purposes.
Do not use for frozen specimen.
When making re-embedding paraffinblocks, use the Transfer-Seal.
Avoid water because it will make the adhesiveness of the Banking-Seal to the Banking-Card weaker.
Avoid hot and humid place because it might make it difficult to detach the Banking-Seal.
When punching, be careful about contaminations.
