Slide Box Storage is a cabinet for storing cassettes with histological specimen and histological slides, previously identified by the Multi Scan Box and Multi Scan Slide scanners.
A display installed on front and connected with the computer of the scanners shows the position in the cabinet where shall be located a tray after the scanning process and the location of the tray to be retracted when an operator needs a specific slide or tissue cassette.
A complete mapping of the storage cabinets and the arrangement of the trays in various cells is rendered visible due to display installed in the local storage connected to the main server and to the scanner computers.
The operations of loading and unloading of a tray from the archive can only be carried out by an authorized operator. Opening of the cabinet, which is secured by an electric lock, enables the reader which identifies the operator performing the operation. In order not to create new recognition systems it is possible to use the systems already implemented within the hospital unit.
All loading and unloading operations (event, date, time, operator code) are registered in a database to determine the history of events.
