Whiteboard Video Explains Why LaserTrack™ Is Best For Histology Cassette Printing
The technical side of how cassette printers work can get...well...technical. Speeds and feeds, bits and bytes, dpi and lpi...one thing that all histology labs know they need is a cassette printer that is easy to use, rock-solid reliable and prints highly legible text and barcodes cassette after cassette after cassette.
Many histology labs are implementing barcode-based identification and tracking of specimens in order to streamline workflows, enhance productivity and specimen traceability, and eliminate errors.
An efficient barcode tracking system depends on barcoded tissue cassettes that are scannable. If the barcodes on the cassettes won’t scan, the process is interrupted, workflow bottlenecks occur, and the integrity of the data can be compromised.
For barcoded cassettes that are highly legible and deliver high scan rates, laser is the best and most preferred printing technology. Why? Here's a detailed technical explanation >
For the non-techies, here's a new whiteboard video we just released that explains the difference between the different printing technologies and why, if you want to use barcodes on tissue cassettes for specimen tracking, you need LaserTrack:
