“Rankin Biomedical is passionate about supporting the cancer diagnostic community and especially an educational organization like Beaumont’s Schools of Histotechnology. When we learned about the need for a tissue processor that the students can utilize for hands-on experience, we thought that it would be a great opportunity for us to show our support by supplying the school with a critical piece of lab equipment. We hope that it will further the great program that they already have in places,” says Brent Rankin, V.P., Business Development.
“We are very grateful for the donation of this equipment,“ says Sarah Bajer, BS, HTL, program director, Beaumont Schools of Histotechnology. “This will allow our students to get valuable, practical experience in tissue processing, helping them to learn skills that are critical to success in their career.”
