We really love the Tissue Tek TEC  - have never had any problems with it 
or the previous one that I now use solely for prion-infected tissue. 

I did see a cool one at NSH - I'm not sure but think it might have been 
TBS.  It had an infrared sensor and so you don't need a footpedal or 
pressure switch - when you break the beam with the mold it just dispenses.

[Histonet] Embedding centers - need feedback on new models to replace 
dying unit

Dear All,

I would like private feedback on embedding centers, new models, people are 

now using.  My beloved Medim DDM 0065 is slowing dying an electrical 
although cryo and paraffin dispenser units still work!   I realize 
embedding centers are pricey, but what isn't these days, please forward 
pros and cons to me on usage.

Also, any feedback on who repairs these, maybe a used equipment dealer, 
would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
