Tissue-Tek® Xpress® x Series Continuous Rapid Tissue Processors
view extended version
The advanced automation of the Tissue-Tek® Xpress® Continuous Rapid Tissue Processor continues with the next generation of the Xpress® platform: Tissue-Tek® Xpress® x Series, the only rapid tissue processor that actually speeds up the process.
With the improved reagent system, enhanced QC possibilities and software options, the histopathology laboratory will achieve new levels of speed in processing, with an hourly throughput of up to 120 specimens. The Xpress® x Series uses an innovative, low-wattage microwave technology, improved, molecularfriendly reagents and traditional vacuum infiltration techniques to provide consistent, superior results in record time.
The speed and continuous throughput of the Tissue-Tek® Xpress® x Series allow an even distribution of cases throughout the day, making workloads more manageable. Specimen slides now make their way to the pathologist faster than ever, enabling same-day diagnosis and thus drastically reducing patient stay and anxiety.
In addition, the process without formalin and xylene employed by the Tissue-Tek® Xpress®x Series adds a crucial advantage to the field of molecular pathology. The Xpress® X Series reagents preserve DNA, RNA and protiens in the paraffin block, eliminating the need to use fresh tissue for molecular studies. The reagent provide excellent morphology, sharp nuclear detail and crisp cellular images equal to or better than conventional tissue processing. Compatible with special staining and immunohistochemistry methods, these reagents can often eliminate the need for antigen retrieval.
The Tissue-Tek® Xpress® x Series is the only platform offering you:
