LOGOS

The First All-In-One Hybrid Tissue Processor

LOGOS

Ultra rapid two retorts tissue processor

LOGOS is a tissue processor that can accommodate all types of histological specimens and workloads. Histotechs can process urgent and small biopsies, on demand. It delivers workflow flexibility while enabling same day diagnosis. It fulfills all CAP/ASCO guidelines for assessing Her2, ER and PgR testing in breast tissues.

LOGOS eliminates toxic reagents such as Xylene and clearing solvents granting a much lower disposal cost and greatly extending the life of the paraffin wax. This results in a significant reduction of reagent costs compared to traditional processing.

LOGOS has two retorts. One where the reagent steps, fixation, dehydration and clearing are performed and one where the wax is kept hot for infiltration. LOGOS can be operated in two different ways, fully automated walk away processing or by using a dual processing mode. The standard walk-away processing is similar to other processors where, when the reagent steps are finished, the wax is pumped into the reagent retort and infiltration is performed. Using this method does require a cleaning cycle as wax has been pumped through the system. A delayed (overnight) process can be set up to finish at a specified time as well. Using the Dual mode allows for high throughput utilizing both retorts simultaneously. When the reagent steps are completed in retort 1 the system alarms and the rack is physically moved into the wax retort freeing up the reagent retort where a new run can be started right away. Because there has been no pumping of wax, there is no cleaning cycle required and no associated downtimes.

Why LOGOS?

  • DRAMATIC REAGENT SAVINGS
    LOGOS tissue processor uses only 100% alcohol, resulting in significantly lower consumption of reagents overall. When LOGOS is used in dual mode, wax can last over a month as all the clearing reagent (Isopropanol) is boiled off in the impregnation step. It delivers substantial savings over 10 years that can equate to the capital purchase of the unit.
  • WORKFLOW UNDER YOUR CONTROL
    Overnight and ultra-rapid tissue processing during the day will grant you the highest degree of flexibility and control over your workflow.
  • DUAL MODE WITH NO DOWNTIME
    In the dual mode configuration no wax is pumped in and out of the retort, and no post run cleaning cycle is required.
  • XYLENE-FREE 
  • LOGOS PRODUCES EXCELLENT IHC QUALITY
    Efficient processing combined with reduced chemical exposure, preserves IHC signal.
  • ELIMINATE UNDER-PROCESSED TISSUES
    LOGOS efficiency allows for processing larger or fatty tissue within a normal timeline, eliminating the need for reprocessing and eliminating under-processed tissues.
  • NO CHANGE TO YOUR IHC PROTOCOLS, THUS QUICK VALIDATION
    LOGOS tissue processor will run with your fixative of choice, thus all downstream test results (IHC, FISH, ISH, etc.) remain the same. No change to your protocol is required.
  • FULL COMPLIANCE
    LOGOS can operate with resistance heating only, and processes breast tissue for assessing HER-2 in full compliance with CAP/ASCO guidelines and FDA HER-2 approved testing, in accordance with heating mode, temperatures, and reagent types.
  • TIME SAVING
    Direct transfer of solutions from commercial containers (5l / 1 US gal supplier bottles) into the processing retort. No need of filling tanks as required by conventional tissue processors.
  • HIGH SAFETY STANDARDS
    No pouring, no fumes.
  • ULTRA PROTECTION FOR USER SAFETY
    Fully enclosed system with a twin extraction system of fumes at the retort opening. The slide-out reagent drawer is provided with an efficient ventilation/exhaust system.
  • ERROR-FREE REAGENTS REPLACEMENT
    The LOGOS reagent replacement is error-free thanks to a barcoding check system. When the container needs to be replaced, the operator can double-check the correctness of the reagent used and its positioning in the drawer.
MileWATCH

LOGOS is compatible with MileWATCH 24/7 Monitoring & Alert System

MileWATCH is a 24/7 monitoring & alert system that constantly monitors Milestone units throughout the day and night and alerts operators/manager in case of failures or alerts.

Auto embedding

Engineered for Auto-Embedding

Milestone’s Xylene free tissue processors offers auto-embedding with Synergy Rack System, a unique patented technology. The specially designed rack has a leverage system that allows the molds and cassettes to sit in two positions according to the phase of processing, producing embedded cassettes at the end of the wax phase.

Through dedicated racks and consumables, it can simultaneously achieve processing and automatic embedding. All types of tissues and dimensions can be processed and embedded with this method.
