On-Demand Slide Printing Solution Helps Pathology Labs Reduce the Risk of Specimen Misidentification and Maintain Efficiency


Nussloch, Germany, 19 June 2017. Leica Biosystems today announced the addition of HistoCore PERMA S slide printing solution, expanding their portfolio of slide identification products. PERMA S is a compact, on-demand slide printer providing high-quality, consistent prints while maximizing patient safety at any microtome station.

“We are very excited to expand our product portfolio with the addition of HistoCore PERMA S slide printing solution," stated Matthias Weber, President of Leica Biosystems. “The PERMA S provides users a convenient, easy to use solution that helps reduce errors in patient labeling.  Ultimately, this results in increased patient safety, while maintaining workflow efficiency.”

PERMA S eliminates the need for hand-written or expensive printed labels with easy-to-read 300 dpi imprints and high-quality barcodes. In addition, PERMASLIDE validated slides provide consistent, reliable print quality in white clipped corner adhesive and non-adhesive options.

With a small footprint of 180 mm x 320 mm x 219 mm (7.1 in x 12.6 in x 8.6 in), PERMA S maximizes laboratory space and allows for added work space productivity.

Capable of black print on white slides or the option of color printing, the PERMA S also eliminates the need and expense for multi-colored slides.  With a 100 slide capacity, the PERMA S provides ease-of-use with quick exchange and easy load slide cartridges. Optional extra cartridges are also available to store and load different slide types.

To further enhance the PERMA S printing solution, optional accessories include a PC with a 11.6” touch screen and USB barcode scanner.
