Mayo Clinic-developed HistoMailer™ launched for safely sending tissue blocks for laboratory analysis. This is the first in a series of products designed to specifically address the need for safe, reliable transfer of samples between laboratories.

The HistoMailer was originally developed by technicians at Mayo Medical Laboratories, which receives approximately 30,000 specimens per day from hospitals across the country. According to Mayo Clinic Operations Coordinator Jeff Wills, “The HistoMailer provides end users with a value add when transporting lab specimens. The container is a full-circle tool, from start to finish and provides Mayo with the opportunity to become greener. Mayo’s Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology is currently using the technology, along with over one-thousand users across our client base.” Wills is also an inventor of the HistoMailer technology.

“Working with leading academic institutions to develop new tools and products is an important part of BioCision’s overall strategy to best serve biomedical researchers and clinicians,” said BioCision’s CEO Rolf Ehrhardt, MD, PhD.

BioCision specializes in benchtop products that ensure consistency, reproducibility and standardization of laboratory samples, with applications in drug discovery, and basic and clinical research. Users benefit from high sample reproducibility and consistency – experiment to experiment, lab to lab and research/clinical site to site.
