Many pathologists have adopted the technique of using embedding beads to organise and label individual’s work. At Solmedia we supply alphabetical, numerical and up 32 different coloured embedding beads, thus allowing you to organise the tests of big or small teams. This makes the auditing process a lot easier, as well as manages the progress of an individual’s research.

Improve the efficiency of handovers and revisiting older blocks for analysis, by using our embedding beads to identify who originally embedded the block, no matter the length of time.
