Total Lymph Nodes found  using AdiPress


Submit Every Lymph Node


AdiPress uncovers hard to find lymph nodes that are missed in manual dissections.

Accurately Assess Lymph Node Status


AdiPress does not alter morphology, nor does it destroy large lymph nodes.

Stage With Confidence


AdiPress significantly increased lymph node yield which in turn can result in upstaging.

1. Fix
Specimen that contains lymph nodes are placed in acetone for 3-6 hours
2. Load
Specimen is loaded into LymFilter
3. Go
LymFilter inserted into AdiPress. Press “Go” for automated preparation. Cycle time is 60 seconds
4. Transfer
Compressed tissue is divided, all lymph nodes are submitted to histology.
Automation and AI are inevitable in the field of Pathology as we look for ways to make our work more streamlined, consistent and efficient. It has been a pleasure to work with the FormaPath team because they are extremely receptive to feedback from people who are in the field doing the work. They have a creative and smart team that is always working to improve their technology... AdiPress will be a game changer when it comes to helping Resident Physicians and Pathologists' Assistant save time on their lymph node dissections and make it more predictable of how much time we spend on this extremely time-variable task. Additionally, I think it provides a comfort to surgeons and patients that all of their lymph nodes for staging were found in order to come up with the best possible plan for the next steps in a patient's cancer treatment.

AdiPress has helped streamline grossing. There is no doubt left when it comes to lymph node counts with each resection specimen.
