[Histonet] cassette slide/labeling

We use Leica's IPC and IPS system and are very pleased with it.  These
labelers can be interfaced with any LIS system so that to the system
they appear as just another printer.  We also use the IPS to print our
cytology slides that we use with the ThinPrep Imager.  

We are also looking into a new product that Leica will be fielding soon
called Leica Cerebro specimen tracking system.  This system is sort of a
middle ware that will interface with the LIS to enable bar code scanning
instead of manual entry for virtually every step in the process.  That
includes everything from accessions to final check out.  If we end up
with this system, I will let you know how we like it.

We are looking to get a bar-coded system in our laboratory.  We
currently hand write all cassettes and slides.  What labelers do you
have and do you like them?  Also does anyone have the Ventana Vantage
system?   If so, would you recommend Vantage?
