HistoBAR™ – Histology Cassette with Label-Locking Feature (Patented)

HistoBAR cassettes represent an innovation in the secure identification of histology tissue cassettes used in routine formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) procedures. Its unique design ensures that the applied labels* will not detach during the harsh preparation procedures. The special frame design “locks’ the affixed label in place when the lid is closed, ensuring the integrity of the printed information is preserved during formalin fixation, dehydration with alcohols/xylene, and hot paraffin wax embedding. Typically, these procedures adversely affect standard labels during these procedures, however, HistoBAR overcomes these issues when used with our specially designed thermal-transfer printable labels. When printed with solvent-resistant XAR-class ink ribbons, the adhesive labels with HistoBAR cassettes provide a complete identification solution that ensures maximum data security and robust tracking of specimens.

*We provide labels specifically designed to work with these cassettes, see here.
