I am not sure if the rack for the stainer can be modified in the same way,
but I had the maintenance department take off one inch from one side of a
regular metal slide rack that held 30 slides we used for manual staining.  I
was able to stain thirty 2x3" at one time, but it was by hand.  If you want
a picture of the rack I can email it to you.

Does anyone out there have a good way to stain 2"x3" glass slides
(whole-mount prostates) using a Sakura stainer? I have a 2000 and 601 model
and have tried adapting the rack so I can stain 4 slides at a time, but it's
so inefficient. Any ideas?
