FlexPath™ Blox

Automated Tissue Embedding Module for Anatomical Pathology

Anatomical Pathology tissue cassettes taken by a robot

An embedding module that automates all steps of the delicate paraffin embedding phase of histological samples, allowing the operator to fully concentrate on orienting the tissue.

During the paraffin embedding phase of the histological tissues preparation process, laboratory operators handle hundreds of specimens manually to orient the specimen in the optimal direction for subsequent microtome cutting.

The procedure involves several manual steps that are often repetitive and tedious, leading to fatigue.

As a result, the technician of the anatomic pathology lab may become less attentive during the crucial orientation phase, which is the highest technical task of the entire procedure.

Why choose FlexPathTM Blox

FlexPathTM Blox is Inpeco’s Automation-assisted embedding module that automates all the manual (non-technical) steps of the delicate wax embedding phase of histological samples, allowing the operator to fully concentrate on the tissue orientation.

This tissue embedding module ensures complete traceability and unique sample management, thanks to the integration to FlexPathTM Trace, Inpeco’s traceability software.

It manages samples individually and provides crucial information required to complete the step, such as the characteristics of the sample contained in the cassette.

FlexPathTM Blox also provides:

  • automated blocks de­tachment
  • case sorting
  • standardised automated wax dispensing, reducing waste resulting from mold overfilling and manual handling
