Specimen Processing Solutions

From patient to pathologist, preparing tissue specimens for histological examination requires care, skill and sound procedures.

Leica Biosystems specimen processing solutions help you simultaneously increase quality and throughput with built-in quality, reliability and tissue protection.

Tissue Processing

Automated tissue processors to maximize laboratory productivity for efficient and flexible workflow

Embedding & Microtomy

Modular tissue embedding system offers the flexibility to suit your laboratory 145+ year heritage of market-leading microtome design ensures consistent sections from any block.

Consumables

Paraffin options to meet your processing, embedding, and sectioning needs.

Optimizing Automated Tissue Processing Efficiency To Reduce Cost

You only get one chance to process specimens correctly, but patients need a fast turnaround to end their anxious wait. Leica tissue processors help you simultaneously increase quality and throughput with built-in quality, reliability and tissue protection. So, choose the right instrument for your workload to maximize efficiency and protect critical patient tissue.

Standardization to dual-retort automated processors helped reduce reagent costs by 46%, tech maintenance time by 72% and footprint reduction by 55% at a world-renowned, large medical center.

Gaining Efficiencies With An Anti-static Waste Tray On Histocore Rotary Microtomes

Cut each block carefully and maintain critical diagnostic detail. Leica rotary microtomes give skilled microtomists the precision, control and comfort they need to get the best from every block. So place a Leica rotary microtome on your bench and consistently get the best possible sections from any block, for each patient, on every day.

Implementation of an anti-static waste tray enabled a 70% reduction in total cleaning time versus a standard waste tray, potentially resulting in a savings of 56.4 minutes per 24 hours, per microtome.

Reducing Batch Size To Improve Slide Turnaround Time

Keep your laboratory running safely and efficiently. Leica Biosystems has a broad range of histology and general laboratory consumables to help you maintain your laboratory.

A Provincial Hospital reduced batch sizes from embedding to case assembly in order to decrease wait times and result in slides being completed earlier, realizing a 177% improvement in slides ready for QC.

“Another big reason I went with the HistoCore PELORIS 3 is reagent costs and savings. We are at least at 10% savings on our reagent costs with the PELORIS, and I expect our savings to increase with our second PELORIS 3.”
