AW: [Histonet] pneumatic tube for specimen transport

From:"Gudrun Lang"

We use it as fast transportsystem between the surgery and the histolab for
frozen sections.
It works fine, because the nurses wrap the wet tissue in paper or plastic
bags. Or they put it in small, tight containers.

So, until now the system was kept clean.

The other specimen come with a "little train" cruising through the whole

Betreff: [Histonet] pneumatic tube for specimen transport

Posted on behalf of Sue Lewis:


I would like to know if there are work areas or labs using a pneumatic tube
system to transport wet tissue, FFPE blocks and/or slides between work
areas.  If anyone were using a tube system, would you share any challenges,
successes or recommendations?


Thank you,

Sue Lewis
