New Tissue Processor Focused on Improving Patient Safety

Leica Microsystems has announced the release of Leica ASP6025s that is focused on improving quality, laboratory productivity and, most importantly, patient safety.

Tissue processors, such as the new Leica ASP6025, play a critical role in histology laboratories where a patient's tissue samples are prepared for disease diagnosis, especially where cancer is suspected. As nearly all patient samples in the histology laboratory pass through the tissue processor, the primary focus of the new Leica ASP6025 is to ensure that specimens receive high quality processing with utmost protection and care for each specimen.

According to Arnd Kaldowski, President of Leica Biosystems, "Patient safety should never be compromised. The new Leica ASP6025 focuses on protecting patient specimens as damaged biopsies mean a patient needs additional surgery or that diagnosis is compromised. This is why we have made sure the Leica ASP6025 provides exceptional quality while ensuring patient tissue is always looked after".

As well as providing the exceptional processing quality needed for accurate diagnosis, the Leica ASP6025 incorporates a range of innovative features for specimen safety. These include a battery backup system that protects the specimens even during a complete power failure and the simple addition of a glass window that allows a quick visual check of specimens during processing. Also, Leica RemoteCare remote 24 hour monitoring helps identify problems before they damage tissue.

Along with the specimen safety features, the Leica ASP6025 also helps modern laboratories ensure high-productivity while protecting staff. Its rapid processing capabilities ensure fast turnaround times while a host of productivity innovations reduce upkeep time. Laboratory staff can also breathe easily thanks to a xylene-free processing option, contact-free remote fill and drain, and a unique system that draws fumes away for the operator when the processor's lid is opened.

Part of Leica Microsystems' Total Histology Solutions, the Leica ASP6025 processor is now available worldwide through Leica Microsystems extensive sales and service network who can also assist with a complete range of tissue processing consumables including cassettes, paraffin wax and reagents.
