What is large format processing?
Large format tissue processing is a technique for histology laboratories to process larger pieces of tissue using the same instruments as those for standard tissue processing. Studies have shown that large format processing saves time and money and provides pathologists a better view of the case instead of piecing it back together on multiple slides.1, 2
Pathflow Supa Mega cassettes are almost three times the size of a standard cassette and can fit that much more tissue. With large format histology, pathologists are able to see more of the tissue at once, allowing better examination of whole tissue sections and margins. They're available in standard, slim, and SupaMega Mothership sizes.
PathFlow SupaMega Mothership Cassettes use an innovative docking bay for the majority of standard-sized tissue processing cassettes printed with ID bar codes and/or test information. This enables the specimen to be entered onto an LIS, guaranteeing accurate and reliable tracking.
