Optimizing Your Sample Identification Process
Pathology laboratories require reliable specimen identification throughout the processing of patient samples. Poor or missing identification or non-standard handling can lead to misidentified samples.
This webinar will review common practices like hand-labeling cassettes and slides and discuss the potential downsides of using non-specialized printers in the lab to produce labels.
The presenters will also explain how to evaluate cassette and slide printers for your lab and the technical specifications that indicate their suitability for reliable specimen identification.
This webinar will help you:
- Discuss the disadvantages of hand-labeling slides and cassettes
- Describe the potential implications of misidentified specimens
- Explain the technical capabilities of slide and cassette printers
- Visualize laboratory workflows that incorporate cassette and slide printers
