Thermo Scientific Clearvue Coverslipper
The ClearVue coverslipper ensures fast and accurate performance to help ease the coverslipping workload in even the busiest of laboratories. A unique range of advanced features allow it to operate with minimal oversight, giving users the freedom to simply load, close, and activate the unit. Load-on-demand capabilities can handle up to 11 slide baskets simultaneously. Baskets can be loaded indivdually or in groups of five. The coverslipper offers compatibility with a variety of stainers to accommodate virtually any lab setting. The ClearVue™ accepts slides from Shandon Varistain® Gemini ES, Shandon Varistain® 24-4, Sakura® DRS 2000, and Leica® Auto-Stainer. Baskets from any of these instruments may be used in a mix-or-match fashion. The touch-screen panel interface includes software that monitors the type of slide preparation, the size and number of slips dispensed, and the number of baskets waiting for use. The integrated disc drive can download technical information and perform necessary software updates.
Integrated sensors ensure proper slide positioning. To protect slide grippers and the prep area, the mountant is dispensed consistently, avoiding splashes and spills. Every slide is optically recognized during coverslipping to prevent illusions or improper handling. The unit automatically identifies and delivers accurate mountant levels, and can process both histology and cytology samples at the same time without user interaction. Preloaded coverslip hoppers also help to save time, with each hopper dispensing up to 500 slips.
Standard safety features include downdraft ventilation when loading and unloading slide baskets, and a charcoal filter that removes vapors before they're able to escape. The system is non-operational when any of its doors are open, and a battery backup ensures operation completion in the event of power interuption or loss. Removeable debris and purge trays simplify cleanup.
