SealSAFE by Milestone Medical

The SealSAFE is an innovative instrument that allows for the use of formalin (or other fixatives) in a safe, controlled and automated way. The SealSAFE automatically dispenses the correct amount of formalin based on specimen weight, then draws a vacuum on the bag and seals the bag for transport. In the gross room the bag is opened, the specimen processed and left of tissue is placed back in the bag and resealed. Improves storeroom utilization by up to 40%. Greatly reduces overall formalin use and disposal expense.  Click on the website link to see a video about this unique instrument then call your Choice Medical rep for additional information.
