The Xerox ColorQube 8570 Wax Printer is a color printer with wax cartridges rather than traditional ink cartridges, ideal for quick prototyping and paper microfluidics.  For paper microfluidics, the wax must be melted at the available hot plate.  The wax printer and corresponding hot plate are located in Specimen Prep.
