Cell block offer the opportunity to examine the histological structure and allows the use of ancillary tests. The automated cell block system from Cellient™ addresses the limitations of traditional cell block methods by providing an automated method for creating cell blocks, filter technology ensures cell capture even in scant cases.
Also samples prepared with the automated cell block systems are well-matched with immunohistochemistry, in situ hybridization and routine special stains. Cell block is a process for preparing cytological material with the goal that it can be prepared, segmented, recolored, and seen as a histology segment.
The Cellient Automated Cell Block System is the only fully automated cell block system. With overall processing time of less than an hour, vacuum-assisted filtration rapidly concentrates available cells within the block. The system consistently produces diagnostically useful, high quality blocks for efficient review.
