Signature Cassette Printer ® Print in color directly onto cassettes for more efficient and more accurate processing of lab specimens. Primera’s New Signature Cassette Printer can significantly increase the efficiency of your lab while helping to reduce the risk of misidentification of specimens. With impressive 300 dpi print resolution, you can print text, graphics and logos along with high-resolution linear and 2D bar codes on every cassette you process. Signature is also the world’s first and only COLOR cassette printer. This revolutionary feature lets you purchase and keep inventory of only one cassette color – plain white. With Signature, you can print a wide range of colors and patterns for faster identification. Easy to Use Signature is designed for easy, hands-free operation. Cassettes are loaded on a plastic rod into an easy to load hopper. The level of cassettes remaining is easily viewed through the front of the hopper. Optional PTLab™ Software Printing only the cassettes you need, when and where you need them, helps avoid potentially serious patient safety errors. PTLab Software was designed by Primera specifically for use with Signature-Series Printers. It can be installed on any Windows XP/Vista/7 PC, including Primera’s optional all-in-one touch screen PC. With PTLab, you’ll be up and running and printing full-color cassettes in just minutes. First, the lab administrator designs templates that define the information that is required on the cassettes including fixed and variable fields. The print area is completely customizable. Or, you can choose from any of the included standard templates. After the template(s) are designed, the editing function is locked by password. The lab tech then scans the 2D bar code printed on the vial or other specimen container. Information contained in the bar code is automatically populated on the cassette. Information can also be entered via the keyboard or touch-screen PC. The number of cassettes that have been ordered for that study are then automatically printed. Several Configurations Available Printers are available for 3rd party integration as well as in complete, stand-alone systems which include printer, software, scanner, keyboard, mouse and mini-PC. Most components (except printer and mini-PC) are medical-grade IP68-rated for water-resistance. IP68-rated components can be disinfected with typical hospital cleaning solutions. Innovation at a New, More Affordable Price Even with its high-resolution, full-color printing capabilities, Signature costs less than all other monochrome-only cassette printers currently available. For the first time, you can afford to de-centralize cassette printing and put an on-demand, direct-to-cassette printer at each grossing station. You’ll reduce the chance of errors, have a more efficient workflow and save time and money by inventorying only white cassettes. The Signature Cassette Printer represents true innovation for Pathology/Histology labs as well as other medical, educational or research organizations that need to print cassettes on a regular basis.
