Problem: tissue processors protocols are based on thickness of specimens Solution: CheckLITE Non-contact, laser-based, thickness measuring device • An objective reference in the grossing procedure • Improved productivity while reducing stress of operator at time of grossing • Reduce the need for reprocessing and improve processing quality by ensuring that thicknesses of all specimens fit selected protocols Green light Specimen is at the preset thickness or below. Sample is above preset thickness and must be re-cut or set aside for a more appropriate processing protocol. CheckLITE unique...
