Simultaneous microwave and resistance heating mode

Simultaneous microwave and resistance heating mode

LOGOS is the all-in-one tissue processor with the exclusive Milestone patented microwave hybrid processing technology. It is a flexible tissue processor highly adaptable to customized workflow streams.
The LOGOS 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.

Innovative workflow options with LOGOS


Fully automated, single retort, rapid hybrid tissue processor

Fully automated, single retort, rapid hybrid tissue processor

LOGOS can run urgent biopsies with hybrid microwave technology as a fully automated unit. Molten wax is transferred automatically to and from the processing retort for the impregnation step. This mode enables single batch runs with short cleaning cycles.
LOGOS can run protocols as an advanced resistance heated conventional processor. Xylene-free protocols with four reagents only: formalin, ethanol, isopropanol and wax. If required, xylene protocols are available. As an alternative, run LOGOS as a rapid tissue processor (delayed start) with desired completion time set by user, allowing additional fixation time if needed.


Sequential, dual retort, simultaneous batch hybrid tissue processor

Sequential, dual retort, simultaneous batch hybrid tissue processor

The first rack undergoes fixation/dehydration/ clearing in the processing retort.
At the end of the processing cycle, the rack is manually transferred to the wax retort.
A new rack is placed in the processing retort. The two racks are simultaneously processed. One in the reagent step and one in the wax step for higher throughput.



Less stressful workload distribution

Less stressful workload distribution

Throughout the day, the histotech can process urgent and small biopsies on demand. These samples/biopsies, which can constitute 40-60% of the workload of a histopathology lab, are rapidly processed. The short processing time allows embedding, cutting and staining of specimens so that the slides are available to the pathologist on the same day. The remaining cassettes can be automatically processed during the night, either by conventional or by rapid hybrid heating technology.

MileWATCH: 24/7 Unit surveillance system


MileWATCH 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.

Compatible with existing Laboratory PC and Server, MileWATCH works without the need of an internet connection: all the related information is securely stored within the local LAN.

MileWATCH offers the possibility to create a unique samples’ Chain of Custody, from the Operation Theater, preserving evidence of the case ID, formalin ratio used , temperature and time of the transportation, until tissues have arrived to the Pathology Lab. Tissue processing protocol details and  nal storage information info will also be collected by MileWATCH and sent to local LIS (Laboratory Information System).

What sets us apart?

  • MONITOR THE PROCESS IN REAL TIME
  • BE NOTIFIED BY EMAIL
  • GET EVENTS LOG AND LOG FILE
  • SORT DOCUMENTATION BY PATIENTCASE ID
  • INTEGRATE INTO THE LIS

Remote monitoring

MileWATCH software provides extended instrument control from outside the laboratory with live view of the units screen. This allows the remote monitoring of every process status during night and day. An instant audio visual alert provides assistance 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Moreover, all units are connected to server for a prompt transfer of process documentation. All documentation is related to the Patient-Case ID.

E-mail notification system

MileWATCH can be set to send live e-mail notification to the interested parties providing all the necessary information for a prompt action to assure trouble-free operations. Recipients can be customized based on notification type. At the end of the program, an e-mail automatically notifies mayor occurrences (events log and log file) to the service personnel and protocol status to the laboratory manager.

LIS integration

Accurate and precise process documentation can be automatically collected and directly transferred by interfacing MileWATCH to the LIS (Laboratory Information System) through the local LAN. It can be stored and retrieved, sorting by Case ID.
