Signature Cassette Printer
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.
