Re: [Histonet] cassette writers

From:Victor Tobias

We have 3 thermo units with the oldest one purchased in 2000. They have 
been extremely reliable and can print 2D bar-codes. The only drawback to 
the current model is that to add the bar-code to the cassette requires 
about 40 seconds per cassette. This is unacceptable in a high volume 
facility. They are coming out with the next generation model at the end 
of the year or early 07 which has a new print head that will take 
approx. 5 seconds per cassette. We are drooling over the prospects.
