An Innovative Center for Macro Digital Documentation of Small Biopsies
In today’s laboratory approximately 40-60% and in some instances up to 95% of specimens are endoscopic biopsies. Handling of these small specimens (3-20 mm) takes place in large, bulky grossing stations designed for very large surgical samples.
WorkSTATION has been developed to fill this technology gap and to document this manual step for patient safety and QA purposes. It dramatically reduces specimen turn-around time at the grossing station compared to conventional handheld systems.
The MacroPATH, a user- oriented capture and storage system for macro images of patient specimens, is integrated with the WorkSTATION.
It dramatically reduces specimen turnaround time at the grossing station compared to conventional shoot and capture handheld systems. Autofocus, auto-light adjustment, and hands free operation through a foot pedal enable users to concentrate on the patient case without manual intervention.
