Vertical Rotating Carousels for Hospitals

vertical rotating carousels hospitals labsVertical rotating carousels provide a secure and organized solution for hospital pathology slide and tissue block storage in less space. Since medical laboratories and hospitals are required to keep pathology slides and tissue blocks for a specified time frame, this retention period can present a unique set of storage challenges regarding space, weight limitations, confidentiality, and tracking and receiving. The vertical rotating carousels are specially designed to meet all of these needs while providing secure storage and retrieval.

The vertical rotating carousels easily support the weight of slide and tissue blocks inventory while increasing storage density, allowing hospitals and laboratories to save up to 75% floor space compared to standard storage methods. The slides are stored on standard trays and placed on carriers within the unit. When an operator needs a slide, the unit rotates vertically to present the slide tray directly to them instead of the operator having to walk and search. Light directed technology is also available, with position lights that direct the operator to the location of a specified tray. Inventory management software can also be installed to display additional information about the slide or tissue block. The carousels can be closed and locked when not in use and transactions can be tracked and recorded to provide user and inventory reports. They also provide 100% ergonomic accessibility and can virtually eliminate damage from slide mishandling. Click here to watch a video about how the vertical rotating carousels work.
