ThinPrep® 5000 Autoloader

Maximize Laboratory Efficiency with Fully Automated, Hands-Free Technology


Increase efficiency and take advantage of 8 hours of walkaway freedom. With continuous access, along with chain-of-custody verification, laser etching and automatic vial uncapping, the ThinPrep 5000 Autoloader brings a new dimension of productivity to your cytology workflow.

Walkaway Automation

  • Load up to 300 filters and slides, as well as 160 samples, for increased walkaway freedom.
  • Refill consumables and vials at any point during system operation to promote continuous processing.
  • Eight output baths hold processed slides in stainer/coverslipper-compatible racks of 20 – encouraging workflow efficiencies.

Ergonomic Benefits

  • Load samples and filters by trays to reduce operator touchpoints.
  • Automated vial uncapping/capping reduces the risk of repetitive strain injuries.
  • A user-friendly, touch-screen interface offers real-time progress tracking and reporting.

Chain-of-Custody Verification

  • Automated vial barcode scanning and integrated laser slide etching maintains chain of custody.
  • Various slide label design layouts enable seamless integration with the laboratory information system (LIS).
  • Information from the LIS –  such as name and date of birth – may also be etched onto slide for additional patient identification.
