Milestone is an Italy-based company founded in 1988, specializing in advanced microwave instrumentation for analytical and organic chemistry laboratories. It was the first company to design and build microwave tissue processor for histology labs and subsequently created the first, fully automated, high-throughput microwave processor.
From the surgery suite to the laboratory, Milestone provides for preservation of vacuum-sealed "fresh" specimens through the system for vacuum transfer of biospecimens, which uniformly monitors both specimen temperature and time.
Milestone's products include a wide range of workstations and macro digital imaging systems for both grossing and autopsy rooms with a focus on pre-analytical aspects. The product range also includes instruments that improve cryoembedding and staining processes leading to high-quality frozen sections in less than 10 minutes.
Milestone’s Medical equipment range is represented in India by DSS from 2017 onwards providing solutions for enhancement of quality in Immunohistochemistry and offer same day solution for early disease management and shorter TAT.
