Guy Orchard

The Power List 2021 – Showstoppers

Guy is Consultant Biomedical Scientist, Head of Tissue Sciences Education and Training, St. John’s Histopathology, Viapath Analytics, an NHS Partnership with Synlab, St. Thomas’ Hospital. He developed a new tissue softening agent (CellSoft) for fine slicing of dissection samples and devised a fine-tissue slicing mechanism (TruSlice and TruSlice Digital) that enables consistent tissue sampling down to 1 mm accuracy with greater consistency. Guy identified a formula that softens tissue without causing chemical damage, enabling scientists to sample deeper into hard tissues. He recalls the funniest moment of his career – “[rescuing] a kestrel from the window ledge outside the laboratory!”
