June 2018—Sakura Finetek USA launched its Tissue-Tek Prisma Plus Automated Slide Stainer, which has a throughput of 530 slides per hour.
The Prisma Plus software offers 50 stain reagent colors so users can visually differentiate the stain components and their location within the stainer. Various stains running in parallel are customizable with a choice of 50 user-defined staining protocols. The barcode scanning system scans staining kits and their components and logs the information. This feature aims to improve documentation and help laboratories to more easily comply with inspection agency requirements. The company’s Tissue-Tek iSupport system provides remote diagnostics and monitoring. The Prisma Plus can be connected with the Tissue-Tek Film Coverslipper or the Tissue-Tek Glas g2 Coverslipper to create an integrated, fully automated walkaway staining process from slide baking to slide drying.
