Plymouth, Minnesota’s specialty printer manufacturer, Primera (News - Alert) Technology recently announced new Ethernet connectivity option for its Signature Slide Printer.
Announcing the availability of this fast, networkable Ethernet connectivity option at the 2012 National Society for Histotechnology (NSH) Annual Conference in Vancouver, Canada, Primera said that the connectivity can be accomplished either wirelessly with 802.11n/g or through a direct Ethernet cable connection.
Primera's Signature is direct-to-slide printer, which is extensively used in the medical, clinical and research labs worldwide. Capable of printing in both black monochrome and color, Signature helps increase efficiency and reduce the possibilities of specimen misidentification due to illegible handwriting or labels that can be misapplied or can fall off. Printed images are highly resistant to xylene, acetone, limonene, alcohol, water and other chemicals found in labs.
Primera's Signature facilitates on-demand printing to let lab technicians print only the slides they need. It helps eliminate messy, hard-to-read handwritten slides or hard-to-apply xylene-resistant labels that can fall off or be put on crooked and cause automation failures. Reducing inventory and purchasing requirements, Signature also helps in cost saving.
Compact design enables desktop placement next to lab technicians and other lab equipment. Included in it PTLab Standard Edition (SE) software, designed specifically for use in labs for slide printing, gets labs up and running in just minutes with a complete, stand-alone slide labeling system.
Signature is also equipped with optional PTLab Professional Edition (PE) and XE (Extended Edition) for interfacing to a wide variety of LIS (Laboratory Information System) software.
“Signature Slide Printer is helping labs all over the world to become more efficient and improve patient safety. With its new Ethernet wireless or wired network connection, multiple lab technicians can now send jobs to the printer. This makes cost-justification of the printer easier than ever before. It's now economically feasible for almost any lab to bring direct-to-slide printing into their facilities. You can add more printers as needed and as budgets allow,” Primera's vice president of sales and marketing Mark D. Strobel noted in a statement.
