High Capacity Storage Solution #1: Movable Aisle Shelving

Everything about the Movable Aisle Shelving is designed to maximize every inch of space for storing glass slides and paraffin blocks. Movable Aisle Shelving removes unnecessary access aisles and compacts to save floor space. To save even more space, the shelves are adjustable, which means the glass slides and paraffin blocks stack vertically with little wasted space. In addition, the Movable Aisle Shelving can be designed from 48" high all the way to the room’s ceiling height if needed. The Movable Aisle Shelving’s heavy duty construction can easily handle the weight of the glass slides and paraffin blocks. Both pathology and histology labs will be able to at least double their storage capacity using Movable Aisle Shelving.

Benefits of Movable Aisle Shelving for Storing Glass Slides and Paraffin Blocks Storage

Here are just some of the benefits of using Movable Aisle Shelving for storing glass slides and paraffin blocks:

  • Shelves designed specifically for all types of storage trays
  • Optional locking mechanisms to secure stored paraffin blocks and glass slides
  • Infrared aisle safety sensors to protect glass slides and paraffin blocks
  • Maximizing paraffin block and glass slide storage capacity in a minimal amount of floor space
  • Better organization

High Capacity Storage Solution #2: Vertical Carousels

While the tissue and blood specimens are being tested and analyzed, they need to be easy to locate and retrieve. We provide fixed shelving with drawers for short-term paraffin block and glass slide storage. The paraffin blocks and glass slides are arranged in trays that fit into the shelving drawers. This system keeps them easily accessible and organized.

Once the tissue specimens are ready to be archived, the technician can remove the entire tray and move it to the basement where the high capacity Vertical Carousels are located. A Vertical Carousel is a fully enclosed cabinet system with rotating shelves that move up and down along guide tracking to deliver stored slides to an ergonomic work counter.
