When it comes to histology cassette printing, General Data's ID/Positive CL-01 set the standard for reliabiity, ease of use and print quality. The CL-01 is now the LaserTrack AB1 Laser Cassette Printer - the same cassette printer used in hundreds of histology labs- now with a new name.
The LaserTrack AB1 Laser Cassette Printer enables you to print flawless barcoded tissue and biopsy cassettes anywhere in the lab. The LaserTrack AB1 uses advanced laser technology to create the precise, clean edges and clear lines a barcode requires, and produces permanent and indelible printing that survives the harshest of histology processes.
Many histology labs are implementing barcode-based identification and tracking of specimens in order to streamline workflows, enhance productivity and specimen traceability, and reduce or 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. The LaserTrack AB1 cassette printer’s laser printing technology consistently and reliably produces sharp, crisp text and 2D barcodes that are permanent and deliver nearly perfect scan rates.
We have the General Data AB1, formerly known as the CL-01, and it is fantastic! The barcodes and numbers are legible, they never come off in the processor, and there is no smearing or smudging. I find it very easy and compatible with every system, even our excel spreadsheets. I have used other cassette printers before, but I find the AB1 far superior. We did the whole lab in General Data equipment and have been fully satisfied with every aspect from start to finish, and I think the AB1 laser cassette printer was a great asset - you will not regret it!”
Permanent and Indelible Cassette PrintingThe LaserTrack AB1 Laser Cassette Printer uses precision laser technology to ablate a special coating on the face of the tissue or biopsy cassette. The resulting durable, high-resolution barcodes and text on the cassette can withstand the harshest histology reagents and solvents without fading or damage.
High Resolution Text and Barcodes For Nearly Perfect Scan RatesThe LaserTrack AB1 Laser Cassette Printer uses advanced laser technology to print the precise, clean edges and clear lines a barcode requires to produce a nearly perfect scan rate throughout the tracking process. Barcodes scan reliably and remain legible throughout harsh histology lab processes and the life of the cassette.
Easy To Operate Anywhere In A Histology LabThe LaserTrack AB1 Cassette Printer makes cassette printing a simple process at accessioning, grossing, or anywhere cassette printing is needed in the lab. Cassette magazines are easy to load with up to 70 cassettes each. The AB cassette and filter are all that are necessary, so no foil tape, light bulbs, ink cartridges, or printheads are needed. Cassettes come in pre-taped stacks for easy magazine refill.
Smooth Operation Minimizes Cassette JammingThe LaserTrack AB1 Laser Cassette Printer utilizes a simple and unique cassette printing and delivery mechanism that is smooth, quiet, fast, and minimizes the possibility of cassettes jamming in the printer. Uninterrupted workflow means greater lab efficiency and productivity.
