pfm Forceps EWF 600

The pfm Forceps EWF 600 is the first wireless heated forceps for safe transfer and alignment of tissue samples during embedding in histologic laboratories.


Convenient wireless operation  The pfm Forceps EWF 600 is the first electronic forceps without cable, where data is transmitted from the base station to the forceps via a connection signal. The temperature of the forceps is adjusted and monitored by using the touch screen. During application, the temperature of the forceps tips remains consistent for 30 minutes. The battery level of the forceps is indicated on the display. A low charge status is additionally indicated on time by a flashing of the white light on the forceps. Then the forceps must be exchanged.

Constant temperature in the forceps tips  The tips of the forceps are gold-plated for optimal thermal conductivity. The set temperature is maintained constant via a connection signal between the forceps and the base station. The blue light on the forceps indicates a stable connection. The signal strength is also shown on the display of the touch screen.

Perfect illumination of the work area  The pfm Forceps EWF 600 has an integrated white light in order to illuminate the work area for better detection of smaller tissue samples. 

Ease of operation  The pfm Forceps EWF 600 is equipped with a modern touch screen system. By lightly swiping the screen the display conveniently switches between the various display options.
