SealSAFE

Fixative Filling and Vacuum Sealing System

Safe and Documented Biospecimen Collection

SealSAFE is an automatic specimen management system that allows users to seal biospecimens under vacuum, with or without fixative. SealSAFE offers operators added protection from formalin fumes, as the entire sealing and filling process is performed in an enclosed and vented chamber.
SealSAFE provides complete standardization and automation of the specimen collection process, whilst ensuring exceptional preservation of the sample. SealSAFE also enables the tracking of specimens data, starting from collection in the surgical theatre. SealSAFE is an asset to any surgery suite or Pathology department.

Zero Formalin Exposure

Operator Protection Against Formalin Exposure

SealSAFE eliminates formalin exposure and allows operators to handle specimens in complete safety, as the unit automatically dispenses formalin into dedicated bags in a closed and vented chamber.
After placing the bag with the specimen inside the chamber, the operator simply closes the unit’s cover and starts the sealing process.
SealSAFE achieves zero formalin exposure for formalin fumes and spillages.*
*SealSAFE allows to reduce formalin exposure within the limits defined by WHO (World Health Organization).
The device has to be installed according Milestone instructions.

Standardized and Fully Documented Preanalytical Step

Optimal preservation and reliable tracking of specimens are crucial for any pathology laboratory. SealSAFE allows users to completely standardize and automate the specimens’ collection and transportation whilst ensuring exceptional preservation of the sample. SealSAFE also secures the chain of custody, enabling the tracking of the specimens’ data from the time of collection in the surgical theater to the time of accessioning in the pathology laboratory.
OPERATING ROOM

1. Specimen Collection

Specimen collection
SealSAFE is designed to be within reach of the operating room to allow specimens to be collected easily and safely. The unit seals the sample under vacuum, with or without the injection of fixative, and prints a label with the most relevant information (CaseID, User, sample’s weight, fixative quantity, etc.) for complete documentation.
FROM OR TO AP

2. Specimen Transfer

Specimen transfer
The specimen is then transferred from the OR to the pathology lab. The correct and controlled transport of biospecimens is pivotal to ensure the preservation of the tissue. The Milestone Data Logger Card records both time and temperature during transit, ensuring documented conditions of transportation.
PATHOLOGY LAB

3. Accessioning

Accessioning
The specimen arrives in the pathology lab along with all relevant information about its collection and transfer. The pathologist has direct access to the documentation of the previous steps, ensuring full traceability and proper preservation of the biospecimen.

Plastic bags

Improved Archiving

The use of high quality, durable plastic bags dramatically reduces the space for storage at the accessioning stage as well as for archiving. Compared to the traditional specimen buckets, SealSAFE vacuum bags take up less than 80% of the typical required space. Furthermore, the use of the bags dramatically decreases the volume of waste, thus saving money on waste management. When disposed, the plastic material used for the bags is dioxin-free, reducing the impact on the environment.
SealSAFE special vacuum bags are available in 6 different dimensions, to fit any kind of specimen and feature 3 pre-set sealing areas to allow for multiple uses per bag.
