Leica IP S Inkjet Printer for Microscope Slides

The Leica IP S imprints slides in only four seconds per imprint when running in serial mode. A resistant ink, specially designed for Leica Biosystems, makes imprints durable to chemical exposure and physical wear. Whether alphanumeric characters or 2D-Datamatrix barcodes, the print resolution is always satisfactory with good legibility. Barcode imprints enable laboratories to track specimen throughout the complete histology workflow. It also permits reliable archiving with quick and accurate case identification. An optional external magazine helps to automate the slide sorting process to avoid specimen mix-ups.
