Cassette printing is one of the essential elements of a histology lab workflow. A well-planned lab workflow integrates cassette printing throughout the lab – including at receiving and at each grossing station, printing barcoded tissue cassettes as they are needed as each case is processed.
General Data provides reliable cassette printing solutions for every size histology lab and every type of workflow – from large, high-volume labs to small specialty labs. No matter what your lab processes, how you process it, and what software system you use in your lab, General Data can help you design and integrate a tissue cassette printing solution that’s easy to use, rock-solid reliable, and maximizes your lab’s productivity.
For over a decade, General Data has been providing histology labs with cassette printing solutions that are specifically designed to be part of an overall specimen tracking workflow system. With General Data, it’s more than just a cassette printer – we also supply integration services, consumables, and comprehensive service plans to make sure your cassette printers are always in top working order.
We are continually working with our customers to improve cassette printing in their labs, adding new features and options that enable labs to become even more efficient and maximize their investment in cassette printing technologies.
I manage a Hospital Histology Lab, and we replaced a much larger cassette printer with the LaserTrack PH1. With the quick print speed and the small footprint, it prints the same amount of cassettes in a much smaller workspace. In the three months we have been using this unit, the scan rate has been 100% at the grossing station, embedding station and the microtomy station, which means those 7,000+ blocks have been scanned a total of more than 21,000 times with no fails. I think that’s just phenomenal! We’re now adding this cassette printer to our lab, and I would recommend it to histology labs of all sizes.”
We have the General Data AB1, formerly known as the CL-01, and it is fantastic! The barcodes and numbers are legible, they never come off in the processor, and there is no smearing or smudging. I find it very easy and compatible with every system, even our excel spreadsheets. I have used other cassette printers before, but I find the AB1 far superior. We did the whole lab in General Data equipment and have been fully satisfied with every aspect from start to finish, and I think the AB1 laser cassette printer was a great asset - you will not regret it!”
