OptiFlex Tissue Center

Manage Tissue Compliance with Confidence

Misidentifying or other mishandling of tissue and bone specimens can be catastrophic for the patient and the hospital. Increasingly stringent regulatory requirements are intended to prevent these problems, but the extra documentation can be daunting. Among other things, hospitals must carefully track the tissue identification banks, licensing agencies, and registration information, as well as the name of the recovery or distribution center.

The OptiFlex™ Tissue Center is a hospital tissue tracking system that addresses these challenges. It enables healthcare facilities to electronically manage and document tissue specimens, creating a more efficient process by automating manual tasks. The Tissue Center gives materials and operating room managers more effective control over tissue trackingincluding supply movement, storage, replenishment, and billing.
