Connecting, processing and embedding in the histopathology laboratory

Sakura Finetek Europe has launched Tissue-Tek SmartConnect, an automated transfer system that creates a continuous flow between the Tissue-Tek Xpress x120 Rapid Tissue Processor and Tissue-Tek AutoTEC a120 Automated Embedding System.

This new, innovative SMART solution enables a laboratory to optimise its workflow and work more efficiently, eliminating repetitive and unnecessary manual work. Hence, laboratory staff can focus on taking care of the best possible patient journey.

Tissue-Tek SmartConnect is the first Sakura Finetek Europe launch from its European research & development department. In the coming months, the first histopathology laboratory will be equipped with Tissue-Tek SmartConnect to show its value and support laboratory staff in the workplace.

Sakura has a long history of innovation and technology. It launched the first fully enclosed tissue processor, Tissue-Tek VIP rapid tissue processor, Tissue-Tek Xpress and Tissue-Tek AutoTEC automated embedding system. The Tissue-Tek SmartConnect is one that fits perfectly in that line and brings enormous opportunities for future innovations.
