Locking Tissue Orientation from Grossing Through Review with Tissue-Tek® Parafor...

Pathologists, Pathologist Assistants, and Histologists are challenged with orienting and locking small tissue specimens in cassettes at grossing and embedding. If not oriented correctly, the tissue sections may not be adequate for the Pathologist to ...

A Simple Tool For Securing Tissue Orientation and Standardizing Tissue Location:...

One of the challenges that Histologists face is orienting tissues and locking the orientation of small biopsies and core tissue punches during manual embedding. If not orientated correctly, the subsequent sections are not adequate for the Pathologist...

Liquid Biopsy: A Minimally Invasive Method Enabling Prenatal or Cancer Diagnosti...

A minimally invasive method of monitoring disease status before, during and after treatment benefits both patient and physician. Whole blood serving as a “liquid biopsy” can provide a means of monitoring the status of an event (e.g. pregn...

Tissue-Tek SmartSection® The First Random Access, Fully Automated Robotic Microt...

Sectioning is the most important and challenging technical skill of Histotechnologists. Producing quality slides with consistent section thickness without tears, wrinkles and folds is critical for Pathologists to make a diagnosis and for image analys...

Continuous Specimen Flow Changes Night Shifts to Day Shifts While Reducing Turn-...

To reduce average TAT from 36-42 hours to 24-26 hours, the laboratory was restructured to include, relocation and a new floor plan for linear specimen workflow with a larger workspace. Conventional tissue processors were replaced with continuous flow...

Cost-Effectiveness Of Remote Live Digital Imaging For Intraoperative Consults Us...

More hospitals are establishing centralized frozen laboratories on-campus and/or at satellite facilities creating the need to provide Pathologists instant remote access to frozen section slides for review from their office for live intraoperative con...

A Minimally Invasive Method (Liquid Biopsy) Enabling Detection of Rare Cells usi...

Whole blood, serving as a “liquid biopsy”, can provide a means of monitoring the status of a cellular or tissue-based event (e.g. cancer) using a minimally invasive needle stick of the patient.

Improving the Yield of Cell Deposition onto Glass Slides to Detect Target Cells

The cytocentrifugation protocol for depositing cells from a suspension onto glass slides requires maximal cell yield and highest recovery rate to detect target cells. These deposited cells need to retain their cellular integrity for cell or biomarker...
