The advanced automation of 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, these reagents can often eliminate the need for antigen retrieval.
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%
- Formalin- and xylene-free fixation and processing
