Slide and Cassette Printers

When patient safety is on the line, rely on the accuracy of on-demand systems

In traditional batch processing, technicians print hundreds of cassettes and slides, then manually match them with specimens—often hours later. It’s a system destined for transference errors.

Thermo Scientific™ on-demand slide and cassette printing solutions make accuracy easy. Labeling takes place right at the laboratory technician’s workspace—right when the tissue is processed. No unattended samples; no illegible, handwritten cassettes or slides; no confusion.

Grossing—Cassettes are printed on-demand during grossing by scanning barcoded specimen containers and selecting key variables via a simple input device like a barcode scanner or touchscreen.

Microtomy—Slides are printed on-demand during sectioning by scanning barcoded cassettes and selecting key variables via a simple input device like a barcode scanner or touchscreen.

Immunohistochemistry—IHC slides are printed at the microtome with the necessary text and barcodes to automate the IHC stainer process.
