Abstract

The present disclosure relates to a method of identifying and tracking a tissue sample before, during, and after a histological preparation. The method includes a tissue collection process followed by a tissue slide preparation process. The tissue collection process includes inputting tissue sample information into a cassette printer, printing at least some of the information onto a cassette with the cassette printer, and collecting and depositing the tissue sample into the cassette. The tissue slide preparation process includes scanning the printed information from the cassette, printing at least some of the scanned information onto slides with a slide printer, and mounting the tissue sample on the slide. The tissue slide preparation process can be performed entirely at a single workstation, and the slide printer can be dedicated to the single workstation. The method can include connecting the cassette printer and/or the slide printer to a network and retrieving and storing the tissue sample information onto a database connected to the network.
