This embedding instrument is manufactured by Sakura. It is not that the instrument orients the tissue, that is done when the tissues are placed in the cassette and held in place by a plastic frame that will be sectioned along with the tissue when the block is prepared. To function ideally it requires a special type of cassette and cassette holder (that is used alsao by the Sakura Xpress microwave tissue processor).

I've heard rumors that there are systems for doing automated paraffin embedding AND that they orient tissue correctly. Could someone (vendor, customer, anyone) please point me in the right direction?

Thank you!
