Designed To Help Improve Patient Safety
By Reducing Labeling and Transfer Errors

The Practice of Surgical Pathology has made tremendous strides in diagnostics over the past decades.  However not one of these advances help patients ... if it's the wrong patient!

Despite this, no significant advancements have been made for patient safety at the gross room table.  Disorganized grossing queue are the norm in most histology laboratories.  These grossing queues are a source of significant specimen identification error, both within a patient's biopsy set (i.e. different biopsy areas mislabeled resulting in incorrect locations on the patient's diagnostic report) or between patients, where diagnoses are switched between two patients. 

Both of these error types can result in significant patient harm with expensive malpractice settlements and significant stress on involved pathologists and staff.

Based on years of experience in surgical pathology, the Safety-Spec Gross Room Tray (TM)  is a simple, easy to use tool to help reduce specimen labeling and cross-contamination errors. It can provide an essential resource for your own patient-safety program.


Our innovative design provides organization for up to four patient specimen jars and two histology cassettes per specimen, plus all patient paperwork, in one, easy to use, lightweight, unbreakable patented tray.

By using one reusable tray per patient, you can organize up to 4 patient specimens to help reduce the chance of specimen part - cassette mix ups. 

Have more than 4 specimens? Use additional trays.

Our patent pending use of tray colors can help to visually identify the specimen type, to help eliminate "back-to-back" grossing of similar specimen types and potential undetected carry over contamination.  Additionally color coding could be used to identify specimens from various locations (i.e. different procedure rooms; different hospitals, etc.)

Improve laboratory EFFICIENCY by eliminating the confusion of unorganized specimens at the gross room table.  Improve specimen throughput, while helping ensure patient identification and safety.

Such simple organizational improvements can help reduce stress on personnel ... and burnout.
