The Leica ASP300 S tissue processor is designed for smart paraffin infiltration of tissue. Straightforward routine user operations and a variety of ‘Smart’ features, such as the Reagent Management System (RMS) and quick start for commonly used programs, improve specimen quality and laboratory economy.
SELECT YOUR FAVORITE PROGRAMS WITH EASE
Frequently used programs can be defined as ‘Favorites’. A single touch of the touchscreen starts a favorite program, using the ‘Smart Start’ function. Smart Start automates the start of most common programs and allows the technician to perform scheduling functions, such as defining a delayed end time by extending certain program steps. Smart Start reduces user intervention, which improves operating reliability. Biopsy protocols are prestored to shorten turnaround time and reduce the need to level workflow in the laboratory. The Leica ASP300 S Tissue Processor is a smart investment for the efficiency of your laboratory.
FULL PROCESS CONTROL
The Leica ASP300 S Tissue Processor and the technician work together as a team. The technician has the freedom to set all critical program parameters and can further control tissue infiltration by modifying the pressure levels inside the retort, as needed. An active paraffin cleaning program removes solvent residues from the paraffin, lengthening its service life.
Real-time process data about key instrument settings, such as current filling status, temperature and pressure inside the retort, paraffin bath temperature, as well as status of the paraffin bath and retort heating systems is always available.
COMPREHENSIVE SPECIMEN PROTECTION
A comprehensive, intelligent safety system reliably protects the specimens. The system even applies the best contingency plan for successful tissue processing, should anything unexpected occur; for example, a power
failure or operating errors such as missing or under-filled reagent bottles.
