Leica Peloris II Tissue Processor
With Leica PELORIS II, your laboratory can enjoy the confidence of high-quality results while addressing new workflow challenges like reduced turnaround times, lean lab processes and same day diagnosis. The Peloris II is a rapid tissue processor that delivers high quality results for any tissue.
It can be operated using xylene as well as in xylene-free mode, achieving rapid processing results using a unique ActivFlo system which generates ideal processing conditions. Two independent retorts offer laboratories the flexibility to process tissue specimens according to workload demands.
The advanced reagent management system monitors reagent quality so that Peloris II can automatically choose the best reagent station for each processing step and also automatically indicate recommended reagent changes.
A range of dedicated smart consumables adds extra value with; cassettes that eliminate biopsy pads, solid Parablocks™ wax for easy wax handling, and reagents to completely eliminate xylene.
