Product Features

Advanced Processing Quality

  • Simple, easy-to-use LCD touch screen with an intuitive display and easy to follow icons helps reduce operator error.
  • Accurate diagnosis is facilitated when samples are optimally processed.  A built in densitometer automatically monitors ethanol concentration ensuring that specimens are processed in the proper dilution.  
Advanced Processing Quality

Advanced Specimen Safety

  • A built-in battery backup system protects tissue samples in the event of a power outage.

  • Quickly and easily view specimens through the retort viewing window to see that your specimens are fully covered during processing.

  • Leica RemoteCare Service offers remote monitoring to help identify and eliminate problems before tissue damage occurs.    

Advanced Specimen Safety

Advanced Laboratory Productivity

  • The ASP6025 incorporates validated protocols and multiple run times for large overnight batch processing or can be customized to run small batches during the day.

  • Featuring a unique pre-melt paraffin station, the system helps avoid delays and ensures that paraffin is always available and melted prior to exchanging used paraffin.

  • Eliminate the need to mix and prepare dilutions and spend less time maintaining the processor all while ensuring optimal specimen processing.    

Advanced Laboratory Productivity

Operator Safety

  • A long-life activated carbon filter and a unique down draft feature, remove fumes that could be present in retort chamber. This minimizes staff exposure to dangerous fumes.

  • Ready to Use (RTU) bottles reside in an easy to access drawer ergonomically designed to minimize spills and injuries. The remote drain system easily and safely drains hot used paraffin and lowers the risk of a paraffin spill.

  • Validated protocols for running xylene free can be easily accessed thru the LCD display. “Green” technology improves health and safety for staff as well as protects the environment.
