What is SYNERGY
The joint effort of Milestone and Klinipath created SYNERGY: a revolutionary Patented (n. EP 2 439 510 A1) method to automatically embed tissues as part of the processing protocols. This method is applied to Milestone’s rapid tissue processors PATHOS Delta and LOGOS. Thanks to a dedicated rack and consumables, the same processor unit can achieve automatic embedding. All kinds of tissues and dimensions can be processed and embedded with this method.
SYNERGY Processing Methods
The specially designed rack with a ring placed at the bottom of the processor retort, has a leverage system that allows the molds and cassettes to sit in two positions according to the phase of processing.
During the fixation and reagent steps, the molds are angled, so the fluids can flow in and out without retention.
At the end of wax impregnation (as soon as the rack is lifted) the molds go flat, collecting the necessary paraffin to embed the tissue.
