The AB4 Laser Cassette Printer, formerly known as the CL-04, provides a solution for permanent, indelible tissue cassette printing with high-resolution text and barcodes. It is a versatile histology cassette printer that is designed for both batch or distributed (on-demand) cassette printing lab workflows. With features such as 4 quick change cassette magazines and the built-in cassette organizer, the AB4 saves time, increases productivity and significantly reduces cassette labeling and specimen misidentification errors.
Using barcode technology for positive identification and tracking of specimens in the lab means fewer errors, greatly enhanced workflow efficiencies, and lab technicians that spend less time worrying about specimen identification errors and more time on diagnostics, results and patient care.
Many histology labs are implementing barcode-based identification and tracking of specimens in order to streamline workflows, enhance productivity and specimen traceability, and reduce or eliminate errors.
An efficient barcode tracking system depends on barcoded tissue cassettes that are scannable. If the barcodes on the cassettes won’t scan, the process is interrupted, workflow bottlenecks occur, and the integrity of the data can be compromised.
For barcoded cassettes that are highly legible and deliver high scan rates, laser is the best and most preferred printing technology. The LaserTrack AB4 cassette printer’s laser printing technology consistently and reliably produces sharp, crisp text and 2D barcodes that are permanent and deliver nearly perfect scan rates.
