Today the future is here

Welcome to Histos 3, the rapid microwave histoprocessor for same-day diagnosis for reduced patient stress and improved patient care.

The Histos 3 is the result of Milestone’s 18 years of research in applying microwaves to histoprocessing and of the experience of hundreds of microwave histoprocessors installed worldwide. The Histos 3 provides the ideal combination of processing performance, reagent efficiency, and environmental sensitivity, without sacrifying the morphology and quality histopathologists expect.

Milestone Hostos 3 Features

The Histos 3 unit is ideally suited for histology laboratories that process generally small to medium size biopsies and where thickness of sampled tissues is easily controlled to no more than 3 mm thickness.

The Histos 3 utilizes a higher temperature during the wax impregnation step (instead of the vacuum step used in the Histos 5) to eliminate the excess traces of organic reagents from the specimen. Like the Histos 5, the Histos 3 can process up to 110 cassettes.

Same-day diagnosis: benefits for the patient and the patient care management team

Welcome to Histos 5, the rapid microwave histoprocessor for same-day diagnosis for reduced patient stress and improved patient care.

The Histos 5 is the result of Milestone’s 18 years of research in applying microwaves to histoprocessing and of the experience of hundreds of microwave histoprocessors installed worldwide. The Histos 5 provides the ideal combination of processing performance, reagent efficiency, and environmental sensitivity, without sacrifying the morphology and quality histopathologists expect.

Milestone Hostos 5 Features

The growing research in the application of microwaves for the acceleration of tissue processing has been fuelled by the need for dramatic reduction in tissue processing times. The new Histos 5 is the latest result of Milestone’s commitment to innovation.

The Histos 5, which combines microwave irradiation with state-of-the-art computer control of power, time and temperature, consistently produces rapidly processed tissues with optimal cytomorphology and improved tissue sectioning properties.

The Histos 5 unique processing technique provides higher throughput, same-day processing for same-day diagnosis, less patient stress, and a greener and safer work environment. Rapid and consistent processing of specimens of 4-5 mm thickness is made possible by the patented intermediate evaporation step with a preset vacuum protocol down to 100 mbar.
