New Embedding System Histocore Arcadia - the Simple Solution to Complex Embedding

publication date: Sep 16, 2015
author/source: Leica Microsystems GmbH


Leica Biosystems today announced the release of the HistoCore Arcadia, a modular embedding system designed to streamline workflow in histopathology laboratories.

The independent Arcadia modules offer users the flexibility to organize the embedding workflow to their liking.

HistoCore Arcadia is a combination of the paraffin dispensing module Arcadia H and the cold plate Arcadia C. Simple operation and precise control help improve the quality, reliability and speed of embedding work. The new station is designed with the user in mind and incorporates comfortable wrist-pads that increase comfort and stability, an optional magnifier to facilitate specimen orientation of small and complex biopsies and an LCD touchscreen for increased control.

The large workspace area of the Arcadia H allows the user to set out multiple cassettes and molds. The paraffin tank holds up to 4 liters of paraffin which in most cases is sufficient for a complete day. The temperature of the different compartments and surfaces of the instrument can be adjusted individually.

The cold plate HistoCore Arcadia C can hold more than 60 cassettes. Cooling efficiency is critical so the cold plate was designed with an environment-adaptive control module to stabilize the operating temperature at around -6 °C.

Andreas Knaack, Leica Biosystems, Global Vice President for Core Histology stated: “Today we are launching our new embedding station: HistoCore Arcadia. We are excited to be able to provide our customers with an even better solution for one of their most labor-intensive tasks in today’s lab environment.”
