RESISTANCE HEATING MODE
1. Reduced number of processing steps
The Logos One carries out rapid protocols only with 1 step of ethanol and 1 step of isopropanol, thanks to its advanced retort heating system.
2. Fast ramp time and precise temperature control
The resistive heating elements, built in the aluminium retort walls, ensure a fast and homogeneous temperature increase of the reagents to the pre-set processing values.
The diffusion of the reagent is guaranteed by a highly efficient magnetic stirrer bar at the bottom of the retort, ensuring an optimal flow through all of the cassettes of each rack level.
The LOGOS ONE unique features
- Only two processing steps (1 ethanol and 1 isopropanol)
- Fully automated processing in overnight and in rapid mode
- Parallel processing in continuous flexible-size batch mode
- Up to 140 cassettes with 1 gallon standard reagent containers
- Up to 210/300 cassettes with 5 liter reagent containers
- Any type of tissue can be processed, up to 10 mm of thickness
- Xylene or xylene-free protocols
Unmatched processing times
Enables same-day diagnosis with a flexible and adaptable fast processing schedule
|Specimen thickness||Rapid and fully automated protocols||Improved workflow with sequential processing in continuous batch mode|
(i.e. GI/Endoscopic biopsies)
|Full batch* processed in 2 h 10 minutes
|Batch* loading every 1 h 47 minutes|
|3 mm||Full batch* processed in 3 h 34 minutes
|Batch* loading every 2 h 31 minutes|
|5 mm||Full batch* processed in 5 h 54 minutes
|Batch* loading every 3 h 34 minutes|
Note: The above timing are referred to ethanol/isopropanol 2 layers protocols, excluding reagent movement.
* Up to 140 cassettes with 1 gallon containers and up to 210 cassettes with 5 liter reagent jars
Unmatched workflow options
As a fully automated, single retort, rapid tissue processor
As a fully automated, single retort, overnight tissue processor
During the day, LOGOS One can run urgent biopsies in a short time as a fully automated unit. Molten wax is automatically transferred to and from the processing retort for the impregnation step. During the night, LOGOS One can run protocols as an advanced and resistant heated processor. Improved operations are carried out through xylene-free protocols with only four reagents: formalin, ethanol, isopropanol and wax. It also has an optional delayed start mode, with a desired completion time set by the user, to allow additional fixation time, if needed.

Day operations enhanced
As a sequential, dual retort, continuous flow tissue processor
1. In the processing retort the
first rack undergoes a fixation, a
dehydration and a clearing phase.
2. At the end of the processing cycle, the rack is manually transferred to the wax retort.
3. A new rack is then manually placed in the processing retort. The two racks are processed simultaneously.
Less stressful workload distribution
Throughout the day the histotech can process urgent and small biopsies on demand.
These samples/biopsies, which can constitute 40-60% of the workload of a histopathology lab, are
The short processing time allows embedding, cutting and staining of specimens so that the slides are available to the pathologist on the same day. The remaining cassettes can be automatically processed during the night.
Consistent high quality slides with Milestone processing
All types of specimens can be easily processed with the LOGOS One. Excellent quality results for H&E, Immunohistochemistry, FISH and molecular studies.
No reagent transfer to tanks
Direct transfer of solutions from commercial containers (5l / 1 US gal supplier bottles) into the processing retort. No need of filling tanks as required by conventional tissue processors.
Ultra protection for users safety
Fully enclosed system with a twin extraction system of fumes
at the retort opening. The slide-out reagent drawer is provided
with an efficient ventilation/exhaust system.
No pouring, no fumes.
Error-free reagents replacement
The Logos One reagent replacement is error-free thanks to a barcoding check system. When the container needs to be replaced, the operator can double-check the correctness of the reagent used and its positioning in the drawer. 1. Scan the barcode on the bottle to check the proper reagent. 2. Scan the barcode of the wall’s back label to check the correct position of the bottle.
An innovative unit surveillance system
The optional middleware MileWATCH monitors from remote, in real time, 24/7 the processor status with live notifications. MileWATCH can be set to send e-mails to the interested parties: protocol status to the laboratory manager, alerts to service personnel, providing all the necessary information for a prompt action to assure trouble-free operations.
