Cost Effective and Secure Archive Management Solution
First introduced in 2003, CellNass is an innovative archive management service delivered by CellPath Ltd, aimed at the needs of those within Cellular Pathology.
Over 50% of NHS hospitals in the UK are now using CellNass, and is figure is constantly growing. This has made us the market-leader for Cellular Pathology archive management and the go-to company for those seeking to transfer materials to an off-site secure facility.
Building More Space for 'Your Space'
The demand for CellNass services has continued to grow in 2018 as new and existing customers make the decision to store more of their valuable materials with us. To accommodate demand, we are expanding our premises once again here in Newtown, Mid Wales. This will be our 4th and largest build over the last 12 years.
Our new CellNass facility will be twice the height of our existing buildings. At the moment, we use several different methods to make the most of our available space. We are currently exploring newly developed innovations which we plan to apply to this next development.
Two of our team recently visited Germany to attend a conference which introduced us to the latest developments in space management. Whichever method we use, there will be plenty of space for our customers.
Though it is always difficult to tie down a timeline, we are looking for completion in approximately 12 months. We have the plans, the designs and the planning permission so we are looking forward to moving in this time next year.
Paul Webber, Joint Managing Director, is looking forward to new and exciting techniques. In Paul's words:
"We know how important this service is for our customers and we are keen to make sure that we are always able to provide for them. We want to keep our customers happy and in order to meet demand, and deliver the service expected, we need more archiving space. We're keen to be more efficient, whilst always improving our standards".
Benefit from our Loaned SmartStor Solution
CellNass are now able to loan out SmartStor 2 and SmartStor 8 cabinets, free of charge to our customers on contracts of 3 years or more, further evolving our archive management solution.
Both the SmartStor 2 and SmartStor 8 storage cabinets have been specifically designed to maximise the number of slides and/or blocks they hold, and provide numerous benefits to customers including:Cost savings: By using SmartStor cabinets, customers no longer need to purchase their own. Releasing further space within hospitals: Using the CellNass solution results in less cabinets being required onsite. This is due to both the SmartStor 2 and SmartStor 8 cabinets being able to accommodate CellNass SmartStor slide and block archiving boxes, which when full, can simply be taken out of the cabinets, and transferred to the CellNass facility and simply placed with a new SmartStor box. Greater flexibility and leaner operations: Rather than having to place slides and blocks directly into a metal cabinet, our solution allows users to remove the required SmartStor box and transport it to their workstation to add the relevant slides and blocks. When no longer required, the boxes are simply placed back into the cabinets until required again, eliminating the need for double handling and potential human error, whilst also freeing up valuable time. Negated risk: At the front of each cabinet drawer is a purpose-built slot which holds a new archive label, which is transferred onto each CellNass SmartStor box when full. This prevents the possibility of human error from duplication of labelling. Simplified Uplifts: As we would only need to pick up SmartStor boxes, the process is quicker, less disruptive and results in no pack-up fees.
