Product Features

Your Schedule, Your Way

Load and unload cassettes on your schedule, not the instrument's. The unique dual-retort design, short cycle times, and flexible protocols give you the flexibility to establish and adapt a workflow to meet the demands of your laboratory every day. Urgent biopsies coming in? A validated 1-hour rapid protocol has your back. Breast samples ready for diagnosis within the same day? No problem, thanks to an optimized 5 hours fatty tissue protocol.


High-Quality Results, Every Time

A magnetic impeller in each retort generates a reagent vortex to actively accelerate processing through rapid and even-heating, as well as active reagent distribution. THE ACTIVFLO SYSTEM provides ideal processing conditions for all tissues.


Maximize Your Processing with ActivFlo Cassettes

Maximize the effects of the ActivFlo system with validated ActivFlo cassettes. Compared to standard cassettes, ActivFlo cassettes drain up to 23% more efficiently than standard cassettes, resulting in a potential benefit for processing quality and efficiency, as well as reagent onboard longevity.


Foundation For Crisp Clear Stains

Histology workflows rely on efficiently fixed, processed and stained samples to enable reliable analysis. Optimal tissue processing conditions for each tissue type on the HistoCore PELORIS 3 lay the foundation for smooth downstream applications and the crisp, clear stains pathologists look for.


Confidence In Your Results

The HistoCore I-Scan technology captures each cassette individually, including cassette ID, quantity and color. Use the scanner as well to capture the basket ID, individual user ID’s, and reagent information.

Two built-in density meters monitor reagent changes and alert users if there’s an incorrect concentration to protect the integrity of the tissue.

The software provides you with added cybersecurity including Anti-Malware Protection with Windows® Defender and whitelisting detection.


Optimize Your Workflow with Leica Paraffin

Use Leica Paraffin with your HistoCore PELORIS 3 tissue processor to further improve your workflow. PELORIS Parablock paraffin melts 21% faster than pellets. Just load 5 blocks into the wax chamber and walk away. No need to top off paraffin.
