SmartConnect

A helping hand in your laboratory

With an increasing rise in the number of cancer cases, we see laboratories working as hard as they can to deal with cases in the limited time they have.

That’s why we believe they can use all the help they can get so they can work on what truly matters.

Increase efficiency

Imagine being able to spend your time doing what matters most. Imagine a lab with no repetitive work and no unnecessary operations.
Tissue-Tek SmartConnect® Automated Transfer System

A closer look at Tissue-Tek SmartConnect

1. Optimise the workflow

1. Optimise the workflow

by providing an automated continuous flow from processing till embedding without any interruption. Standardising the process.

2. Enable track and trace

2. Enable track and trace

in processing and embedding can enhance the efficiency of a laboratory and has a positive effect on patient safety because it helps trying to find a missing block or cassette.

3. Single point of contact

3. Single point of contact

By automating the connection, we simplify the operation of our instruments; loading grossed tissue and unloading the embedded cassettes once finished. The touch screen is the only station you need for daily operations.

4. Automated connection between Tissue-Tek Xpress® x120 and Tissue-Tek AutoTEC® a120

4. Automated connection between Tissue-Tek Xpress® x120 and Tissue-Tek AutoTEC® a120

When the Xpress finishes its process, the cobot will autonomously take the magazine pair out of the Xpress, and place both magazines into the AutoTEC.
No need for lab technicians to interrupt the skilled task at hand to get to the instruments. They can keep their focus on what they're doing, leading to higher productivity and less chance of errors.

5. Automated loading of  conventionally processed tissue

5. Automated loading of conventionally processed tissue

Tissue coming from a conventional processor like the Tissue-Tek VIP® can be loaded into the transfer area of the Tissue-Tek SmartConnect, from where the cobot will load it into the AutoTEC.
