Isolated communication sample processing system and methods of biological slide processing
WO 2004059288 A3
Abstract
A sample processing system (101) that may be automated and methods are disclosed where a number of sample processing systems (101), such as stainer, may be connected to a number of separate full function computers (181) through a stainer network (183) that may be isolated from other communication traffic. A network configuration may permit scalability and addressability so that additional sample processing systems (101), additional separate full function computers (181), and additional other devices such as label printers (200) may be easily added to the system. One or more remote information links (171) may be provided so that information transfer on a continuous or perhaps constant basis can be accommodated.
