Challange

Challange

Recent changes in the laboratory’s setup have rendered the liquid nitrogen freezing technique unsafe. Hence, the lab has been seeking a less hazardous and restrictive solution that would allow for ultra-fast freezing of samples, without compromising tissue preservation.
Solution

Solution

The FlashFREEZE system quickly and safely freezes samples at -80°C, standardizing the entire process.
The customer says: “We have validated the freezing method with the FlashFREEZE: this system allows an equivalent or higher quality of tissue preservation compared to liquid nitrogen freezing”.

Challange

In 2017, the Anatomo-pathology Laboratory at Louis-Mourier Hospital closed and its operations were relocated to Bichat-Claude-Bernard Hospital’s laboratory. Consequently, it was necessary to find a solution to prevent storage and transportation of large samples in formalin, protecting operators against toxic exposure.
Solution

Solution

Thanks to TissueSAFE plus, large samples are placed under vacuum immediately after their extraction and sent to the Anatomo-pathology Lab, avoiding any formalin exposure.
A printed label is attached on the vacuum-sealed bag, ensuring complete traceability of the vacuum date and time, user and patient ID.
