Paraffin Block Trimmer


The Paraffin Block Trimmer ( generally called Wax Trimmer, Paraffin Trimmer, Wax Remover, Paraffin Remover, Dewaxer etc) is one of the histology equipment used for the research.

The Paraffin Block Trimmer enables the researchers to trim the paraffin blocks automatically. This instrument removes only paraffin residues around the paraffin blocks without damage to the tissue samples or the plastic cassette.

When users loading the paraffin blocks finishe the embedding process, the blocks moves to trim the paraffin residues into the instrument and the trimmed block is discharged from the outlet of the instrument.

Eventually, this instrument also enables to save the research time and to prevent the users from any injuries caused by the conventional trimming way.


  • Save labor time of researchers
  • Protect researchers from any physical damages which may be caused by conventional trimming tools.
  • Max. 750 paraffin blocks can be trimmed in an hour.
  • Semipermanant life time of trimming modules
  • Accept the various kinds of embedding cassettes.
