BxBoard – 6 Lane

For 16-18g core needle biopsies

Goodbye bottles for small biopsies, hello Lumea BxBoards. Medical personnel place tissue samples on special hydrophilic formalin-soaked sponges within the BxBoards. This tech preserves anatomic orientation, allowing for more specific localization of the disease.

BxBoards are also healthier for MAs, physicians, and lab personnel because they reduce the amount of formaldehyde exposure.

Clinics and surgery centers using the BxBoard report an 83% reduction in containers and an 89% reduction of formalin per prostate case, and an overall 136% reduction in biohazard waste per histology lab.

BxChip – 6 Lane

For 16-18g core needle biopsies

The BxChip is a patented Sectionable Matrix. It can hold up to six biopsy core specimens throughout
lab processing. One study reported the following benefits of using the BxChip in their urology lab:
• Histologic tissue surface area (mm2) increased by an average of 14.5% on the glass slide.
• Biopsy core length increased by an average of 31.8%.
• Most notably, the overall cancer detection rate increased by 9.3% (49.5% to 58.8%)!

Labs using the BxChip also see an average of 78% reduction in grossing time, an 83% reduction in embedding, and a 76% decrease in total lab time per prostate case.

Smart Tissue Camera

The Smart Tissue Camera takes accessioning to the next level. A laboratory technician places a specimen under the camera, which uses artificial intelligence to quickly and accurately measure the entire surface area of the tissue. An RFID reader simultaneously links it to the correct patient encounter in the LIS. Gross your specimens in seconds with minimal handling.

CytoRing & BxTag

CytoRing: Gyn, Non-Gyn, and UroCyte slide prep
BxTag: Embedding tool and reference plane for anatomical tissue

The CytoRing and BxTag are of the same material as the BxChip. Embed them with a biopsy specimen to provide a reference point for a whole slide image scanner.

This consistent reference point throughout the various levels improves the digital slide resolution.

The CytoRing goes with ThinPrep processing slides. Lay it over the painted circle on the slide, process it on the ThinPrep machine, and stain it as usual.

The BxTag is a small arrow placed next to a specimen. Its shape can also indicate specimen orientation.

“It’s actually fun to gross prostates here. In a full day, I could gross 100 BxChips full of prostate cores by myself. If I had to do that same amount of cores the traditional way it would take me a full week, and I would probably quit after the first day.”
