Fully automated histology tissue embedder

The AutoTEC a120 is a secondgeneration, fully automated tissue embedder that eliminates the labour intensive need to manually orient and embed tissue specimens and form tissue or cell paraffin blocks. The AutoTEC technology, combined with the Paraform Sectionable Cassette System ensure that the orientation of specimens is locked from grossing to microtomy for all routine tissue types, thereby eliminating the risk of orientation mistakes and tissue loss for increasing patient safety. The new AutoTEC a120 with the Paraform Sectionable Cassettes remains the industry’s first and only fully automated embedding system. Enhanced features include the incorporation of a cassette barcode reader for LIS connectivity and traceability of specimen blocks, and the SMARTair technology to optimize block quality. A larger 15 inch touch screen monitor and the enhanced, intuitive operating system both deliver user convenience. Based on customer feedback, the input and output doors, the paraffin reservoir and access to the base molds are redesigned providing improved ergonomics while requiring minimal user maintenance and further increasing up-time. When used in conjunction with the Tissue-Tek Xpress x120 Rapid Tissue Processors the AutoTEC a120 offers a high throughput of up to 120 cassettes per hour and enables laboratories to reallocate valuable personnel now manually working at embedding stations, and to conveniently level the daily workload in a lean continuous workflow. These SMART Automation systems provide high quality and safe tissue processing, consistent clean blocks, and all important same-day diagnosis.
