This is in response to the messages posted on Histonet that Thermo Electron
Corporation is recalling all the old Cytospins® and no longer supplying the
"re-usable" chambers (clipped Cytofunnels®) and stainless steel clips. We
would like to clarify that the above statements are not true.
Thermo Electron is the original manufacturer of the Shandon Cytofunnels. We
are also the only manufacturer supplying Cytofunnels in 2 versions, the
original Shandon Cytofunnels with Shandon Cytoclips® and the new, clipless
Shandon EZ Cytofunnels.
There is no plan to recall any Cytospin from the field as the new EZ
Cytofunnels are functional on Cytospin 2, 3 or 4 without any modifications.
Currently the EZ Cytofunnels are available in the United States, United
Kingdom and Germany together with the conventional clipped cytofunnels.
Eventually both types of cytofunnels will be available worldwide. We leave
the choice and decision to our customers.
Thank you for the opportunity to correct the previous postings.
