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.


1) Check the size of the blocks applicable to the instrument
2) Prepare for the blocks in order
3) Check the instrument inside out and clear
4) Place an array plate after opening the upper door and close the door.
5) Power switch "On" and then the front lamp turn to " Red".
6) Press Green button to start
7) Put the blocks with the front bevel of the block toward the inlet, and push the block into the inlet, and press the block slightly for a second, then the block will move into the instrument.
8) The block will move into the trimming module to trim the right and left side of the block first, Then, move to the right to trim the other two sides.
9) The trimmed block will come out from the trimming module and laid by 10 blocks and arrayed 10 block x 5 lines (50 block) on the plate.
10) Then, the alarm sounds 3 times
11) After the alarm sounds, please stop inputting the blocks and open the upper door
12) Take out the array plate to replace it with a new array plate to continue trimming.
13) Turn off the power switch when the work is finished completely.
14) After the trimming, a user need to clear the paraffin debris in the trash box and around the trimming module with opening the upper doors.
