AutoTEC on the job


The AutoTEC a120 gives you an automatic, standardised result in your lab


Resolve staffing problems by reducing manual work while increasing productivity


Keep track of your tissue samples throughout the entire, safe process and avoid tissue loss

Some of the benefits

A supportive automatic embedding system
