The First All-In-One Hybrid Tissue Processor
Simultaneous microwave and resistance heating mode
LOGOS is the first all-in-one tissue processor with the exclusive Milestone patented microwave hybrid processing technology.
This system can operate as a conventional resistance heated overnight tissue processor. It fulfills all CAP/ASCO guidelines for assessing HER-2, ER and PgR testing in breast tissues.
Ultra-rapid dehydration/clearing steps are carried out by microwave heating technology for a faster turnaround. Its processing parameters can be set to fit your specific workflow requirements.
- Fully automated processing in overnight and rapid mode
- Parallel processing in continuous flexible-size batch mode
- Up to 210/300 cassettes with 5 liter reagent containers
- Direct transfer of solutions from commercial containers
- Any type of tissue, up to 5mm thickness in split rack (210) or random basket rack (300)
- Any type of tissue, up to 8mm thickness in super mega cassettes rack (24/40)
- DRAMATIC REAGENT SAVINGS
LOGOS tissue processor uses only 100% alcohol, resulting in significantly lower consumption of reagents overall. When LOGOS is used in dual mode, wax can last over a month as all the clearing reagent (Isopropanol) is boiled off in the impregnation step. It delivers substantial savings over 10 years that can equate to the capital purchase of the unit.
- WORKFLOW UNDER YOUR CONTROL
Overnight and ultra-rapid tissue processing during the day will grant you the highest degree of flexibility and control over your workflow.
- DUAL MODE WITH NO DOWNTIME
In the dual mode configuration no wax is pumped in and out of the retort, and no post run cleaning cycle is required.
- LOGOS PRODUCES EXCELLENT IHC QUALITY
Efficient processing combined with reduced chemical exposure, preserves IHC signal.
- ELIMINATE UNDER-PROCESSED TISSUES
LOGOS efficiency allows for processing larger or fatty tissue within a normal timeline, eliminating the need for reprocessing and eliminating under-processed tissues.
- NO CHANGE TO YOUR IHC PROTOCOLS, THUS QUICK VALIDATION
LOGOS tissue processor will run with your fixative of choice, thus all downstream test results (IHC, FISH, ISH, etc.) remain the same. No change to your protocol is required.
- FULL COMPLIANCE
LOGOS can operate with resistance heating only, and processes breast tissue for assessing HER-2 in full compliance with CAP/ASCO guidelines and FDA HER-2 approved testing, in accordance with heating mode, temperatures, and reagent types.
- TIME SAVING
Direct transfer of solutions from commercial containers (5l / 1 US gal supplier bottles) into the processing retort. No need of filling tanks as required by conventional tissue processors.
- HIGH SAFETY STANDARDS
No pouring, no fumes.
- ULTRA PROTECTION FOT USER SAFETY
Fully enclosed system with a twin extraction system of fumes at the retort opening. The slide-out reagent drawer is provided with an efficient ventilation/exhaust system.
- ERROR-FREE REAGENTS REPLACEMENT
The LOGOS reagent replacement is error-free thanks to a barcoding check system. When the container needs to be replaced, the operator can double-check the correctness of the reagent used and its positioning in the drawer.
LOGOS is compatible with MileWATCH 24/7 units surveillance system
MileWATCH is a 24/7 units surveillance appliance that continuously monitors and controls Milestone units throughout day and night. Status Information are collected from units installed in both Operating Theaters and Pathology Laboratory. This, in turn, also helps having a better planning of the Laboratory daily work.
