    Walkaway Automation for Efficient Workflow1


    Continuous, hands-free processing with up to 45 minutes of walkaway time means operators are free to focus on other tasks.

    Carousels can be loaded at accessioning and easily transported.

    Load up to 20 vials, slides and filters.

    Processed slides are racked and ready for staining; output racks can be loaded directly into select stainers and coverslippers.*


    Chain-of-custody Verification for Each Sample


    Barcodes on the vial are automatically matched to the label on the slide, reducing the possibility of errors.

    Urgent samples may be run at any time by pausing batch processing.


    Ergonomic & Intuitive Design for a Smoother Operation


    Automated vial uncapping and re-capping.

    Minimises risk of repetitive strain injuries for operators.
