The system scans, photographs, and records each block or slide, associating it to a specific tray position and storage location within an automated archive for easy retrieval. This sonic sensor scanning technology provides accurate, rapid detection via an internal camera that is able to read quick codes, QR codes, DPM codes, and OCR software.
Protected chain of custody
Check-in/out controls provide visibility into who retrieved a block, why it was needed, and when it is due to return. Blocks that are checked out longer than anticipated are documented.
Upon return, blocks or slides can be placed in any position on the tray and the scanner will update the patient tissue sample’s location in the database automatically.
Storage trays and cabinets make archiving and retrieval easy when used with the Arcos and/or Arcos SL automatied tissue sample management system. Each tray features a unique serial number and easy-to-navigate XY coordinate guides. Blocks and slides are neatly arranged and easy to identify and locate.
