Freedom of Efficiency

Do more with less. Increase you lab's efficiency with our innovations.

Each year: 60,000 cases, 150,000 cassettes and 450,000 slides. And with only 16 employees. This year we visited the Human Pathology laboratory of Dr Weiß. Thanks to Sakura products and services, he set a benchmark for efficiency in histopathology. Dr Weiß was kind enough to share his vision, mission and laboratory processes with us.
