BioCision, LLC Standardizes Histology Procedures with CoolSink™ H Line
Published: Dec 13, 2011
“These products will change the way tissue samples are prepared and have a huge impact on biomarker detection, especially in the new era of personalized medicine,” said BioCision’s CEO Rolf Ehrhardt, MD, PhD. “Poor preparation, which is a common occurrence, can hasten the degradation of proteins and nucleic acids, and compromise ultrastructural fidelity. The CoolSink H line ensures stable, consistent and highly reproducible sample handling.”
In addition to the recently introduced HistoMailer™ biopsy cassette shipper, this new portfolio consists of seven thermo-conductive platforms to equalize temperature and provide an interface between the sample and temperature source, eliminating temperature variability. CoolSink H modules accommodate a variety of commonly used histology vessels including slides, culture dishes, OCT blocks and others.
“BioCision has a proven track record in developing products to standardise and optimize the processing of cell samples,” said Hugh Douglas, BioCision’s Chief Operating Officer. “We are pleased to offer a new line of products that provides the same consistency, reproducibility and standardization in handling tissue samples.”
BioCision’s mission is to standardise pre-analytical sample handling. They develop novel products that eliminate variability in common, often-overlooked, laboratory procedures. Their products are marketed globally and are widely used by the leading institutions in the biotech, pharmaceutical, clinical, diagnostic, academic and government scientific community. BioCision’s products include CoolRack®, CoolSink™ and ThermalTray™ laboratory tube and plate temperature standardizing modules, CoolBox™ ice-free benchtop coolers, CoolCell® alcohol-free cell freezing containers and TruCool™ accessories and consumables.
