We have three of the older six hopper Thermo Micro cassette writers and one Thermo slide mate, in addition to four of the Pslims. The Pslims are the
first generation Slide Mate by Accuplace. They are all connected to our APLIS System (PowerPath) and  we use 2D bar-codes on our specimen labels,
cassettes and slides.

We do not produce a cassette or slide without wanding a bar-code.

The printed specimen bar codes that generate the cassettes and bar-coded cassettes that generate the slides for positive patient identification, out
weighs the manual human method is well worth the effort. This is where all histology lab should be moving towards.

 We have some little network issue with them, but for the most part they print great. The cassette printers work well. Remember these are mechanical
and computer driven, so they will fail at times.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
