Ergonomic, mobile grossing workcenter with digital documentation of surgical specimens

State-of-the-art tool system for gross tissue dissection

This all-in-one grossing workstation has been specifically designed to integrate state of the art tools and standardization into a 21st century system for the dissection of gross tissues. Some of its features are: an enhanced process documentation, safety, flexibility and costeffectiveness. The eGROSS pro-x is the first to incorporate the digital power of specimen identification and the dissection documentation, creating a standardized, image documenting protocol. It can create a custody chain that assures quality at the source of tissue selection and cassette generation from the gross room throughout histology to the pathologist’s desk. The eGROSS captures digital documentation enabling innovative laboratories to seek not only high quality but also work simplification and standardization in pursuit of the “virtual” and dictation-less lean laboratory operations.

Documentation and quality assurance? No problem!

Documentation and quality assurance? No problem!

The The MacroPATH pro-x, integrated with the eGROSS pro-x, is a user-oriented capture and storage system for macro digital images of patient specimens. It dramatically reduces specimen turnaround time at the grossing station compared to the conventional shoot and capture of handheld systems. Autofocus, auto-light adjustment, and hands-free operations, through a foot pedal, enable users to concentrate on the patient’s case without manual intervention.

    LEADING THE WAY IN SPECIMEN AND USER SAFETY


    Leading the way in specimen and user safety
    In the eGROSS pro-x, every single technical detail has been studied and designed to obtain the best performance. The main focus has been put on the exhaust system which is essential to create the necessary air flow in the vented secure area to guarantee the operators’ full protection. To obtain the best air flow speed with the minimum turbulence and noise, a stainless-steel collector chamber (A) has been specifically designed and positioned at the back of the intake grid. Milestone’s engineers have also studied and tested the shapes and orientation of the grid holes to cover the whole vented area, taking in consideration the working aspects during the macro-dissection sampling procedures. The core of the exhaust system is the high speed 2000 mc/h (1177 cf/m) centrifugal fan motor (B). This essential component is installed at the base of the station to reduce the vibrations and to ensure the complete removal of the air mass coming from the dual down and back draft systems.


    The unique validated exhaust technology

    An innovative engineering design leads to the highest specifications in protecting both the user and the specimens.

    1
    Back (1) and downdraft (2) extraction across the working area.
    2
    1) Air flow speed at frontal aperture: 0.7-1.0m/s.
    2) Backdraft extraction with horizontal flow.
    3) Downdraft extraction through holes into the periphery of the cutting board to create vertical flow all around the specimen

    SLIDING IN-AND-OUT PROTECTIVE TRANSPARENT SHIELDS

    Lateral shields protect from any external transversal turbulence like a physical passage of personnel or the proximity to room ventilations. The horizontal shields protect the operator from any aerosol generating from the manipulation of the specimen or from liquid spatters.
