[Histonet] Bar Code and Tracking

I believe it will be difficult to afford the cost of Co-Path in your small lab area, unless you can attach to a bigger hospital information system contract. I suggest you look to companies that have developed products for the small to medium sized histology labs.

Subject: [Histonet] Bar Code and Tracking

I manage a small Pathology lab where we generate approx. 80-140 blocks for Histo and 5-6 Cytology fluids a day. I have 2 Histotechs that swap doing grossing monthly. I have 1 full time and 1 part time Cytotech and a Cyto assistant. I am curious if there are any smaller labs out there that have gone to a Bar Code and Tracking system and can offer any input. I came from a much larger lab that used CoPath from accessioning to sign-out, so that is the kind of system I am used to. It is certainly a system I wish to integrate in to my lab on a much smaller level, we currently have a very manual process, other than some entry/labeling in our LIS.
Any input is appreciated! Tanya
