Tissue-Tek Xpress® x120 

Streamline your tissue processing workflow with an automated tissue processor and continuous throughput

The Tissue-Tek Xpress® x120 rapid tissue processor is the only rapid tissue processor that allows continuous processing to ensure safe tissue handling and streamline the histology workflow.  

The Tissue-Tek Xpress® x120 uses breakthrough, low-wattage microwave technology, improved, molecular-friendly reagents, and traditional vacuum infiltration technology to provide consistent, superior results in record time. By completing tissue processing in approximately 1 hour with the ability to load up to 40 cassettes every 20 minutes using the standard program, the speed and continuous throughput of the Tissue-Tek Xpress® x120 allows an even distribution of cases throughout the day, making workloads more manageable. With true rapid tissue processing capabilities beyond just biopsies, the Tissue-Tek Xpress® x120 reduces the processing time of large tissue specimens from 8 hours on a conventional processing platform to only 2.5 hours, saving up to 5.5 hours with comparable results for both H&E and IHC1. Slides now make their way to the pathologist faster than ever, enabling same-day diagnosis, drastically reducing patient stay and anxiety.

The reagents for the Tissue-Tek Xpress® x120 are uniquely formulated for safe, efficient and rapid tissue processing. Less than 16 liters of onboard reagents are capable of processing up to 1,500 cassettes, reducing in-lab inventory and saving money by cutting reagent waste by up to 80%. The ready-to-use reagents require no dilutions and eliminate bottle placement and filling errors, creating an error-free reagent exchange process that saves valuable technician time. The Tissue-Tek Xpress® x120 reagents are both formalin- and xylene-free, minimizing waste management costs and promoting a less hazardous work environment.

Whether for H&E, special stains, or advanced testing methods like immunohistochemistry or molecular, the Tissue-Tek Xpress® x120 automated tissue processor provides excellent tissue quality that is equal to or better than that produced by conventional tissue processors in only a fraction of the time. Pairing the continuous, rapid tissue processing of the Tissue-Tek Xpress® x120 with the continuous automated embedding of the Tissue-Tek AutoTEC® a120  provides laboratories with an unmatched workflow combination for the fastest achievable turnaround time.
