Leica IP C Inkjet Printer for Tissue Cassettes

The Leica IP C cassette printer has been designed for versatile printing of tissue cassettes, including cassettes with lids and two different imprint angles.

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. A specific advantage of barcode imprints is the possibility to track the sample throughout the complete histology workflow. Additionally, it enables reliable archiving with quick and accurate case identification. An optional external cassette magazine holder is available for easy and convenient loading of pre-taped cassettes.
