Elimination of formalin with TissueSAFE plus

TissueSAFE plus is an innovative and patented vacuum system which solves the problem of eliminating formalin in the operating theatre and allows a controlled formalin-free transfer of biospecimens to the laboratory.

  • No formalin fumes
  • Specimens are held in “fresh” conditions
  • No spilling
  • Original specimen colors are preserved
  • Drying of tissues is eliminated
  • Immediately after excision, specimens are transferred to an adjacent room where the TissueSAFE plus is installed.

Why TissueSAFE plus?

  • FORMALIN-FREE PROCEDURES
    Improved staff health, at both OR and AP rooms, due to zero exposition to formalin. Tissues are transported fresh to the Pathology Lab to perform  fixation under controlled conditions. This leads to optimal histology and grants an improved/consistent IHC stainings. Fresh tissues are ideal for Tissue Banking and Molecular Biology.
  • SAFETY
    Full automated and closed operations. HEPA filter on board.
  • STANDARDIZATION AND QUALITY
    Time & Temperature monitoring for tissues’ transport conditions documentation. No tissue drying. No spillages. No contaminations.
  • IMPROVED ARCHIVING
    Storage in vacuum bags dramatically reduces volume. Archiving without formalin is possible.
  • EXTREME COST-SAVING FOR DISPOSAL
    No formalin used, neither purchased nor disposed. Lower disposal cost thanks to a decreased volume of bio-hazard material in vacuum bags.

MileWATCH

TissueSAFE plus is compatible with MileWATCH 24/7 units surveillance system

MileWATCH is a 24/7 units surveillance appliance that continuously monitors and controls Milestone units throughout day and night. Status Information are collected from units installed in both Operating Theaters and Pathology Laboratory. This, in turn, also helps having a better planning of the Laboratory daily work.
