LYNX II Automated Tissue Processor

EMS is proud to announce the release of the most unique state-of-the-art tissue processor which not only is compatible with all plastic resins but paraffin waxes as well.

Introduction

LYNX II is designed to be the successor of Lynx Tissue Processor with several enhancements including capabilities to perform optional processing of larger size samples for Histology.

The LYNX II holds 12 reagent vials for EM processing. Optional HP (Histology processing) may be done with 12 larger size reagent vials for HP processing. In both EM and HP modes, LYNX II has two, independently controlled, heating/cooling stations.

Operational Overview of LYNX II

LYNX II is a batch mode, tissue processing system. The tissues may be processed for EM or HP. Tissues of either type are processed in the same manner: Samples are mounted on the sample arm and reagents are loaded on the reagent carousel. Based on the selected program by the user, the LYNX II rotates the reagent carousel until the selected reagent station is at the processing station. At the processing station the sample is lowered in the reagent. Based on the selection of agitation and vacuum, the LYNX II periodically moves the sample arm to provide agitation and applies vacuum when the agitation is not in progress. Once the programmed time in a given reagent is over, the sample is raised and the next reagent is rotated in the processing station.

The operator may select the processing for EM or HP by the program numbers. Programs 1 through 10 are used for EM processing and programs 11-20 are used for HP processing. In addition to the proper program number selection, it is the responsibility of the end user to use the proper carousel positions and the appropriate type of reagent vials based on the selection of EM vs. HP processing. Once the unit is properly configured for EM or HP processing, the operator loads the reagent carousel and the samples, selects the desired program and starts the run.

At the end of the run, the sample is retained in the last reagent until the operator removes the sample.
