Milestone FixSTATION 1RH

Optimization, standardization and documenentation of the fixation step

Need good results?
Start with a good preparation

CONTROL OF FIXATION
Accurate control of all steps of the preanalytical process is a prerequisite for precise, reliable and consistent diagnostic assays. Recent publications have evidenced that standardization and documentation of the all important fixation step will lead to improved I.H.C. assays.

TODAY’S FIXATION
Leaving the specimens in a plastic container with formalin overnight does not fulfill the requirements for controlled fixation. No standardization, no documentation.

  • How many hours/minutes is overnight?
  • What is the temperature of the fixative?
  • Is stirring available for temperature homogeneity?
  • After how many cassettes is formalin substituted?
  • Is the pH constant?
  • What kind of documentation is available?

Until now, documented fixation protocols could only be obtained by placing specimens in an automatic tissue processor. This means holding a high performance instrument almost idle for hours/days waiting for the fixation process to be completed and documented.

STEP 1

Place rack in the unit and enter fixation
protocol
STEP 2

After completion of run extract filtering cage from tank. The solution is filtered and residues are trapped in the steel wire mesh filter
STEP 3

Eliminate excess reagent by placing filtering cage on the built-in front hinges
STEP 4

Place rack in transfer tray. For safe
handling a cover is placed on the tray
STEP 5

Transfer the now clean rack to tissue processor. Skip processor fixation step and process specimens in a shorter time
STEP 6

Rinse filter cage over a suitable sink to remove all tissue residues. This operation keeps the fixation solution free from all kind of matters (tissues, mucus) improving the processing step
