Hi Dana,
I can't speak to the Elekta module but I have used the Vantage system for over a year now. We generate a bar code at accessioning that is used throughout the entire process to make cassettes, gross, embed, section, stain and turn out. We do not batch during any of the process other than the 20 slides we put in our staining tray. We scan each block at microtomy as we section which prints a label that we affix to the slide when we pick up the section. We have virtually eliminated errors at all stations. We were able to see quite an improvement in turn around times as well as tracking our specimens. This system also allows us to track quality issues anywhere in the process. Please feel free to contact me if you have further questions.

> I am currently investigating workflow solutions for our Histology Lab incorporating bar code labeling. We use the PowerPath/ Elekta AP System. I am looking into Elekta's AMP Module vs Ventana's Vantage system. I would welcome any comments on these systems and how they work in your lab or if you use something else. I would also welcome any suggestions or comments on how you label slides...Do you batch print and scan barcodes of the blocks and slides at the microtome? Do you scan blocks at the microtome and print labels there for the slides? Do you scan blocks at the microtome and print slides at the microtome? You may email directly if you prefer. Please share! Thanks in advance for your help and feedback!
