RE: [Histonet] Cassette Label System

From:"Darren James"

Hi Paula,

As agents for Thermo Electron in New Zealand I am going to extoll the
virutes of the Shandon models.
Unlike some on the market the Shandon uses foil tape and heated stylus. This
burns the info into the cassette.
They can print conventional and 2D barcodes and manage to print up to 3
lines of 19 characters. The software is fully configurable to customise the
printing to your requirements.
I have contacted several users througout NZ and Australia who all love the
product. A couple of labs have 2 or 3 running at the same time.
I think the biggest benefit is having totally legible cassettes and
therefore a clear audit trail.
Other users may like to comment.
To get more info I suggest contacting your Thermo Electron agent or email
them on

Hope this helps

Darren James

My company is possibly interested in purchasing a histology cassette

Could you please provide information on the different manufactures that
offer printers?  What are the pro/cons?  Is it really that worth it to
purchase one? Does it really save that much time?  Are they easy to use?

Any information, suggestions, and comments are greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Paula Lucas
