The Leica IP S imprints slides in only four seconds per imprint when running in serial mode. A resistant ink, specially designed for Leica Biosystems, makes imprints durable to chemical exposure and physical wear. Whether alphanumeric characters or 2D-Datamatrix barcodes, the print resolution is always satisfactory with good legibility. Barcode imprints enable laboratories to track specimen throughout the complete histology workflow. It also permits reliable archiving with quick and accurate case identification. An optional external magazine helps to automate the slide sorting process to avoid specimen mix-ups.

Requirements for specimen slides

• To reduce the amount of glass dust and the risk of mechanical failures, use only clipped corner slides (45° angle on each corner)

• Slides to be used in the printers must be stored appropriately in closed containers and protected from dust and moisture.

• Positively charged slides stick to each other so they require special handling to ensure reliable mechanical handling by the instrument.

• When the print job is complete, the printed surface of the slide may be handled immediately. Please be aware, however, that the special ink is alcohol-based and exposure to alcohol in

Only standard specimen slides with printable colored edges can be imprinted in the Leica IP S. Printing directly onto the glass is not possible.
