[Histonet] Leica Slide Printer

Hey Susan,

We used a Leica slide printer at the medical center I was previously at.
I believe having clipped corners is pretty much a necessity with the
printer.  Yes, it will work without them but you are prone to a lot more
trouble with the unit.  We used to get multi-colored, cut corner slides
for use with it.  I don't recall the vendor off the top of my head, but
I'm sure someone on this list, or your Leica rep could direct you to a
Our IT guy set it up to read the LIS work list. You could then command
(through a PC) the slide printer to create slides needed for cases as
they were accessioned during the day.

Good Luck,

Our laboratory is a new user of the Leica Slide Printer.  We previously
used the TBS slide etcher.  We are having trouble with our new printer
and the vendor suggested that we were using the wrong slides.  Has
anyone had experience with the slides for this printer?  We currently
are using Evermark slides without clipped corners.  We need multiple
colors of slides because of the various hospitals and types of cases our
laboratory serves.  Thank you, Susan
