HistoCore SPECTRA ST Stainer
Best-in-Class Staining Quality and Consistency
The HistoCore SPECTRA ST is a high throughput routine H&E stainer with the uncompromised flexibility to process H&E and special stains simultaneously by maintaining high throughput. The optimized and validated protocols with specifically designed consumables provide unmatched and consistent staining results for the wide range of intensities pathologists expect.
The new fully automated and innovative HistoCore SPECTRA ST design features a unique dual robotic arm technology to streamline your staining process and eliminates workflow bottlenecks. The intuitive, easy to use software and the precise reagent management system with RFID technology provide more control and a decreased chance for human errors. Ultimately this will free you up to accomplish other tasks and meet increasing workload demands.
Efficiency – Increase throughput
Flexibility – Run multiple protocols
Confidence – Reduce errors
Meet Your Increasing Workloads while Maintaining Critical Staining Quality
Control costs with unique single slide counting
The precise reagent management capabilities of HistoCore SPECTRA ST controls reagent condition and coordinates reagent exchange by counting each individual slide rather than the number of racks. This precise control minimizes consumables waste and corresponding operational costs.
100% Intuitive protocol autostart
The unique color coded rack technology provides clear visual distinction and starts individual protocols automatically when racks are inserted. Racks and slides are recognized and correctly allocated to the designated staining protocols to reduce human errors.
Efficiently process up to 330 H&E slides per hour. Experience uncompromised flexibility and reduction in turnaround time by running H&E and special stains simultaniously at high throughput due to the innovative design and high capacity of 52 cuvette stations.
Integrated solution - streamlined workflow
The HistoCore SPECTRA ST stainer includes an advanced, highly efficient hot air slide drying oven for better specimen adherence to the glass slide. Slide drying is optimized and integrated into the staining process. No additional user interaction or external oven is required, resulting in reduced turnaround time. The oven capacity allows six racks to be processed at the same time.
Minimized hands-on time
The easy-to-use software of the HistoCore SPECTRA ST stainer calculates the optimal bath layouts and eliminates the need to manually generate bath layouts – no manual interaction is required, supporting enhanced lab efficiency. Errors are minimized through the intuitive Graphical User Interface.
Seamless workflow through high amount of stations
The SPECTRA ST stainer uses two robotic arms and employs multiple reagent stations to ensure each rack is stained efficiently, and allows for racks to be stained simultaneously. The unique dual robotic arm technology provides exceptional throughput, resulting in quicker turnaround time.
Increased diagnostic efficiency
SPECTRA H&E Stains provide the clarity and definition you expect. Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology accurately tracks reagent usage, slide volume and maintains records.
