Tissue-Tek Xpress® x120

The Tissue-Tek Xpress® Continuous Rapid Tissue Processor continues with the next generation of the Xpress platform: the Tissue-Tek Xpress® x120. The only rapid tissue processor that actually speeds up the process. With the improved reagent system, enhanced QC possibilities and software options, the histopathology laboratory will achieve new levels of speed in processing, with an hourly throughput of up to 120 specimens. The Tissue-Tek Xpress x120 uses an innovative, low-wattage microwave technology, improved, molecularfriendly reagents and traditional vacuum infiltration techniques to provide consistent, superior results in record time. The speed and continuous throughput of the Tissue-Tek Xpress x120 allow an even distribution of cases throughout the day, making workloads more manageable. Specimen slides now make their way to the pathologist faster than ever, enabling same-day diagnosis and thus drastically reducing patient stay and anxiety.

In addition, the process without formalin and xylene employed by the Tissue-Tek Xpress x120 adds a crucial advantage to the field of molecular pathology. The Tissue-Tek Xpress x120 reagents preserve DNA, RNA and proteins in the paraffin block, eliminating the need to use fresh tissue for molecular studies. The reagents provide excellent morphology, sharp nuclear detail and crisp cellular images equal to or better than conventional tissue processing. Compatible with special staining and immunohistochemistry methods.
The Tissue-Tek Xpress x120 is the only platform offering you:
  • Consistent processing in 1 hour
  • An efficient, manageable, continuous workflow
  • Same day results by real reduction of turn-around time
  • Reduction of reagent usage up to 80%
