How to dramatically reduce your IHC staining times with the Leica Biosystems BOND-III

NEW STUDY SHOWS BOND-III UP TO 40% FASTER THAN BENCHMARK ULTRA

In a recent study, the Leica Biosystems BOND-III was found to complete cases up to 100 minutes faster than the Roche Tissue Diagnostics BenchMark ULTRA. The study examines the panel turnaround time to assess the impact that fully automated IHC and ISH slide stainers such as the BOND-III and BenchMark ULTRA can have delivering the full panel of slides to a pathologist. The scope of the testing was across 10 frequently run hematopathology IHC panels.

DELIVER THE LAST SLIDE WITH THE FIRST

Case reporting timeliness is one metric of laboratory efficiency and performance, with immunohistochemistry recognized as a process that can impact this metric. This study shows that the BOND-III instrument processed common hematopathology panels up to 40% faster than the BenchMark ULTRA instrument which would allow a pathologist to review cases in a timely manner and quickly order additional tests when required. In addition, allowing more slides and panels to be stained within a shift, thereby reducing either panel waiting time or staff overtime, or both.
