  I have used Ventana BenchMark and Dako. In spite of the fact that Ventane is a "walk away" instrument, I prefer Dako. It is much more versatil, accepts any detection system and is simpler.

  Hello all! I hope everyone enjoyed their breif repreive from stress. I was wondering if anyone could give me some input on automated stainers for immunohistochemistry. Currently we hand stain and our volumes are steadily increasing. We are looking at automation as we probably do up to 12-15 stains per day and plan on starting ER and PR. I heard Vantana is very good. How about Leica? (Theirs does both immunos and ordianry special stains.) Anyone have any experience they would like to share? We are an Ascension Health affiliated hospital as that may matter in the negotiations. Thanks for any and all opinions.
