Histo-Labels Setup

Setup Menu

The setup program will allow you to customize the Histo-Labels program specifically for your laboratory by defining accession prefixes, label page formats, laboratory maintenance setup screens, printer setup screens and special procedures.


Accession descriptions l.jpg

Accession Descriptions

Setup Menu

The Accession descriptions that are entered in this screen, will be displayed in the setup screens for each facility that you create. Since many facilities utilize different prefixes and specimen number formats, you can define a unique prefix and specimen number format for each accession description at each facility.

Setup Program

The Label Menu Setup Program is what makes the Histo-Labels program so unique. You define each label menu specifically the way you want your labels formatted, what information you want printed and the exact location on the label you want it printed.

The prompt for each subscript is a ‘Y’ or ‘N’ response. A ‘N’ response will only prompt once for each specimen number where a ‘Y’ response will prompt again after each group of subscripts entered.
