Hi Liz,

We use Leica's IPC and IPS equipment and have found a simple solution to
using them with our LIS.  If you connect a computer (CPU) only, to each
IPC or IPS you want to interface, you can use these units like any other
printer that your LIS lists.  We routinely print slides and cassettes
automatically when a case is accessioned or on demand from any of our

Subject: [Histonet] slide labeler advice

Hello again


We are in the market for a slide labeler.  We currently have the
SlideMate from Thermo Scientific.  We have had it for about 2 years now
and we are just not happy with the quality and consistency of the
printing.  We are a contract research lab and not a clinical lab.
Entering data for each slide is not an option.  The programming that
comes with the Slide Mate is nice, except that no one has really spent
the time to train us on it, we have figured it out a bit. We would want
a labeler that we could create formats for different sample types, so
all we would have to do is put the animal ID in and the printer would
print all of the slides needed.  Would like barcoding capabilities just
incase we move to that in the future.  Any advice or suggestions are
appreciated.  Vendors welcome also.


Thanks in advance.
