Technological innovation increases single instrument processing capacity

For the first time, our world-renowned dual-retort technology will be available to medium-sized laboratories, enabling them to optimise histopathology workflows. Mid-sized laboratories will now be able to run multiple protocols in parallel on a single instrument, providing a solution that adapts to their workflow needs, and reduces unnecessary hands-on time. The dual retorts on HistoCore PEGASUS Plus increase capacity by up to 33% compared to a typical 300-cassette single-retort tissue processor.


The benefit of multiple tissue processing runs

According to Freida Carson#, the biggest problem when processing tissue is processing both biopsy and large [routine] tissue specimens in the same processing run.1 Tissue can become over-processed – that is, the tissue may appear to be cooked, brittle, crisp, dry, or powdery, or under-processed and cannot be sectioned. Biopsy and larger sample tissues should be processed separately using a protocol specific to the specimen.2
