Your Complete Solution to High Quality
Optimized and validated Leica Biosystems consumables, combined with the PELORIS II, gives your
laboratory the confidence of high-quality results while addressing workflow challenges. We will partner with you to
improve turnaround times, control increasing costs, ensure lab safety and help towards same day diagnosis.
• High System Efficiency – ActivFlo System uses a reagent vortex to
actively accelerate processing in two ways: rapid, even-heating on all
sides of the retort; and active reagent distribution with built-in impeller.
• Load and Go – Preformed Parablocks fit easily into the chamber and
do not require topping off.
• Precise Reagent Management –16 reagent bottles and automatic
tracking take the guesswork out of reagent changes.
• Reduce Costs – Lateral vents and V-shaped pores in IP ActivFlo
Cassettes enhance fluidic flow during reagent cycles - eliminating
biopsy pads/sponges and providing up to 25% in reagent savings.1
• Lean Workflow – Up to 600 cassettes per run at full capacity; enabling
same-day diagnosis in rapid mode with the patented dual retort design.
• Smart and Reliable – Built-in Reagent Management System calculates
alcohol concentration, decreasing alcohol exchanges.
• Decrease Downtime – Real-time maintenance and monitoring with
• Rapid and Conventional Tissue Processing – Continuous parallel
processing to run small and large batches, resulting in high throughput
and improved turnaround time.
• Think Safety – Solid Parablocks option eliminates pellet spills and the
need to transfer molten paraffin.
• Isopropanol / Xylene-Free Option – Eliminates the need for xylene in
tissue processing, reducing related health concerns.
• Maintain Order in your Lab – Clearly label cassettes to track specimens,
protect patients and monitor workflow throughout your laboratory with
CEREBRO Tracking System and Specimen ID.
Using Leica Biosystems’ validated consumables with the Peloris II
allows you to efficiently prepare and process tissue for high‐quality
Routine, Special and IHC/ISH staining results.
