Slide / Cassette Printer Integration

Primera provides two methods for integrating the Signature Slide and Cassette Printer into a Laboratory Information System (LIS). What solution you choose is dependent on what LIS system you have and how much development/configuration you want to do. The chart below and Primera's white paper on LIS Integration are great starting points.

PTLab Integration Options Table

PTLab PE


PTLab PE is sold as an optional, extra cost upgrade to PTLab SE. PTLab PE allows labs to integrate the Signature Slide Printer into existing LIS systems. LIS systems that already support a txt file based interface can use Primera Flat File Plugin or LIS vendors or labs can develop their own plugins using Primera PTLabPlugin interface. Both of these options are detailed in the technical papers below.

Signature Printer Driver Integration


LIS systems can integrate with the Signature Slide or Cassette Printer by submitting an image of the slide to be printed to the installed Signature Slide Printer driver. Some LIS systems already support this type of slide printing for supporting other manufacturer's slide printers. If you would like to use this option you will need to verify with your LIS supplier if they support printing to a "raster-based" printer driver. For more specific details on using this interface please read the technical paper in the link below.
