The HistoMailer Ensures Simple, Reliable Transfer from Clinic to Lab
BioCision LLC have launched a new product - the HistoMailer - for safely sending tissue blocks for laboratory analysis. The HistoMailer represents the first in a series of products designed to specifically address the need for safe, reliable transfer of samples between laboratories.
'We immediately recognized the need for a reliable tool to ship paraffin-embedded tissue blocks, which can melt during transport if not packaged correctly,' said Hugh Douglas, BioCision's Chief Operating Officer. 'The HistoMailer is a great fit with our expanding product portfolio of integrated solutions for biomedical sample handling from preparation to shipping. In the coming months, we will be introducing additional products to serve the specific tissue processing needs of clinical histology and pathology labs.'
The HistoMailer was originally developed by technicians at Mayo Medical Laboratories, which receives approximately 30,000 specimens per day from hospitals across the country. According to Mayo Clinic Operations Coordinator Jeff Wills, 'The HistoMailer provides end users with a value add when transporting lab specimens. The container is a full-circle tool, from start to finish and provides Mayo with the opportunity to become more green. Mayo's Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology is currently using the technology, along with over one-thousand users across our client base.' Wills is also an inventor of the HistoMailer technology.
