Signature® Slide Printer

Printing slides on-demand reduces errors and increases efficiency.

Primera's Signature Slide Printer can significantly increase the efficiency of your lab while helping to reduce the risk of misidentification of specimens. It prints directly onto slides, eliminating handwriting or expensive, difficult to apply xylene-resistant labels. With impressive 300 dpi print resolution, you can print text, graphics and logos along with high-resolution linear and 2D bar codes on every slide you process.

Colour Printed Slides

Signature is also the world's first and only COLOR slide printer. This revolutionary feature lets you purchase and keep inventory of only one slide colour – plain white. With Signature, you can print a wide range of colours and patterns for faster identification.

Key Features and Benefits:

Easy to Use

Signature is designed for efficient, hands-free operation. Slides are stored in easy-to-load cartridges – away from dust and other potential contaminants. It takes just a few seconds to change out the cartridge if you need standard slides for one study and positively-charged slides for others. The level of slides remaining in a cartridge is easily viewed through the cartridge's transparent blue LED backlit case.

Slide Configuration PTLab

Optional PTLab™ Software

PTLab Software was designed by Primera specifically for use with Signature-Series Printers. It can be installed on any Windows 7\8.1\10 PC, including Primera's optional all-in-one touch screen PC. With PTLab, you'll be up and running and printing full-colour slides in just minutes.

First, the lab administrator designs the templates that define the information that is required on the slides including fixed and variable fields. The print area is completely customizable. Or, you can choose from any of the included standard templates. After the template(s) are designed, the editing function is locked by password.

The lab tech then scans the 2D bar code printed on the vial, tissue cassette or other specimen container. Information contained in the bar code is automatically populated on the slide. Information can also be entered via the keyboard or touch-screen PC. The number of slides that have been ordered for that study are then automatically printed.

Printing only the slides you need, when and where you need them, helps avoid potentially serious patient safety errors.

Slide Printer with all-in-one-PC and 2D Text and Barcode Scanner

Several Configurations Available

Printers are available for 3rd party integration as well as in complete, stand-alone systems which include printer, software, scanner, keyboard, mouse and mini-PC. Most components (except the printer and mini-PC) are medical-grade IP68-rated for water-resistance. IP68-rated components can be disinfected with typical hospital cleaning solutions.

Innovation at a New, More Affordable Price

Even with its high-resolution, full-colour printing capabilities, Signature costs less than all other monochrome-only slide printers currently available. For the first time, you can afford to de-centralize slide printing and put an on demand, direct-to-slide printer at each workstation. You'll reduce the chance of errors, have a more efficient workflow and save time and money by inventorying only white slides.

The Signature Slide Printer represents true innovation for Pathology, Cytology and Histology labs as well as other medical, educational or research organizations that need to print slides on a regular basis.
