Pathology Slide Tracking

The Pathology Department at an Academic Medical Center asked for a solution to the loss and eventual need for the recreation of misplaced pathology slides.

By adding a Passive RFID tag to the slide and using various RFID read stations, the location of the slides can be identified. The granularity of the RFID read stations will improve the identification of the location which will be available on a master computer screen using the slide identification number.
