WorkSTATION Bx

An innovative, ergonomic center for macro digital documentation of small biopsies

A capture and storage system for digital macro images of small biopsies

In today’s laboratories, approximately 40-60% and in some instances up to 95% of specimens are endoscopic biopsies (prostate, gastrointestinal).
The handling of these small specimens (3-20mm) takes place in large, bulky grossing stations designed for very large surgical samples. The WorkSTATION Bx has been developed to fill this technology gap and to document this manual step for patient safety and QA purposes. It dramatically reduces specimen turnaround time at the grossing station compared to conventional capture and shoot handheld systems.


Quality assurance? No problem!

In less than 2 minutes the following images can be stored in the system.

1) Requisition form
2) Label of the vial
3) ID of the cassette
4) Number of biopsies
5) Size of the biopsies

This information will be very important for quality assurance purposes at the embedding stage to verify the correspondence before and after biopsy processing.

Full documentation

With the MacroPath BX macro digital system, for automatic, rapid documentation of requisition forms, vials, cassettes, # of specimens, sizing of specimens can be easily obtained.
