A Revolution in Histopathology Dissection

by Nov 26, 2018Healthcare



This all-in-one grossing workstation has been specifically designed to integrate state of the art tools and standardization into a 21st century system for the dissection of gross tissues. Some of its features include:

  • an enhanced process documentation
  • safety
  • flexibility
  • cost-effectiveness

The eGROSS pro-x is the first to incorporate the digital power of specimen identification and the dissection documentation, creating a standardized, image documenting protocol. It can create a custody chain that assures quality at the source of tissue selection and cassette generation from the gross room throughout histology to the pathologist’s desk. The eGROSS captures digital documentation enabling innovative laboratories to seek not only high quality but also work simplification and standardization in pursuit of the “virtual” and dictation-less lean laboratory operations.


The The MacroPATH pro-x, integrated with the eGROSS pro-x, is a user-oriented capture and storage system for macro digital images of patient specimens. It dramatically reduces specimen turnaround time at the grossing station compared to the conventional shoot and capture of handheld systems. Autofocus, auto-light adjustment, and hands-free operations, through a foot pedal, enable users to concentrate on the patient’s case without manual intervention.

All the exclusive features of the eGROSS

1. MacroPATH pro-x macro digital imaging system for automatic, rapid documentation of all the grossing steps of surgical pathology specimens.

2. Point-of-care control terminal, 17” touch screen.

3. Corrosion resistant stainless steel (AISI 304) structure and work surfaces.

4. Large sink of 40x34x18 cm (15.7’’x13.4’’x7.1’’) dimensions with a filter and a shower type water faucet.

5. Store frequently used tools close-at-hand on the integrated magnetic bar.

6. Display panels: exhaust flow alarm and control, level of formalin in tanks. Continuous exhaust airflow monitoring, with a feedback light indicator.

7. EXCLUSIVE! Anti-splash transparent slide out covers. Lateral transparent containment boards.

8. Connectivity: • Network ready • LIS compatible • Remote viewing enabled

9. Easy installation. No structural modifications required. Power (a), water (b) and exhaust (c) connections readily available.

10. A large working area of 50×40 cm (19.7’’x15.7’’) dimensions with a cutting board on special supports allows unrestricted downdraft flow.

11. High power exhaust system with backdraft and downdraft. It also includes a specimen safety steel mesh filter.

12. Slide-out waterproof keyboard with a built-in mouse (IP68).


13. An all-in-one control panel places major functions within easy reach.

14. EXCLUSIVE! A unique proximity switch detects the presence of the operator. In case of an absence of over 5 minutes, the unit automatically switches off to extend filter life.

15. A foot pedal control enables handsfree manipulation of major camera functions (zoom-in/out, save, record).

16. Twin tanks (up to 10 liters-2 gallon each) with safety valves, store fresh and exhausted formalin.

17. Easily adjust the eGROSS pro-x working height to accommodate standing or sitting. The unit can be positioned from its lowest setting of 90 cm (38.6”) to the highest at 120 cm (47.2”), and anywhere in between.

18. Mobility through heavy duty casters
