We have a DAKO immunostainer which does this and is a distinct advantage.
By doing so it reduces the amount of waste that must be disposed of by
haz-mat measures thus minimizing disposal costs.  It also simplifies
compliance and 
makes separating and shipping the materials for disposal (for us it's xylene
"still" waste, paraffin from the tissue processors and DAB) a simple
semi-annual affair.

dear all,

Is it worth buying an immunostainer that separates out
DAB waste? Would like to get opinions as we are
looking at our options.
