Milestone was founded in 1988 in Sorisole, BG, Italy as a company specialized in advanced microwave instrumentation for analytical and organic chemistry lab, becoming the first company to design and build a microwave tissue processor specifically for histology labs, and subsequently created the first fully automated, high-throughput microwave processor. Today, Milestone microwave histoprocessors are used in hundreds of medical laboratories around the world, making them the most widely used microwave processors in the field.
Milestone also offers systems for the vacuum transfer of biospecimens, allowing for the first time the preservation of vacuum-sealed “fresh” specimens, constantly monitoring both specimen temperature and time, from the surgery suite to the laboratory. Milestone's products also include a wide range of workstations and macro digital imaging systems for both grossing and autopsy rooms. Milestone product range is completed with instruments that improve the cryoembedding and staining processes leading to high quality frozen sections in less than 10 minutes.
