Every histology lab is different, but the need for a quiet, cold surface is universal. TECA’s newest Thermoelectric Cold Plate product offers a unique option for histology laboratories. Originally designed as a custom solution for a large histology lab, TECA has added Model ERGO-900 to our standard products line.

Model ERGO-900 Cold/Hot Plate is a quiet, ergonomic cold/hot plate with a low profile. It is designed for laboratory and industrial bench-top use. At just under 3 inches high it is scaled down for use at individual microtome stations. The low height is ideal for continuous use in histology labs and other repetitive tasks.

The ERGO-900 is modular and can be placed on any bench-top as a plug-and-play product. Competing readily with other embedding center cold plates, TECA’s ERGO-900 can uniquely be used either with existing paraffin dispensing centers or with individual sectioning stations. The ERGO-900 is built with Peltier technology, which is known for its longevity and low maintenance needs. It combines a quiet fan and a Peltier design optimized for robust performance, creating a unique bench-top solution.
