Ms M,
I don't have the Discovery, but was told when I went to Tucson that it was 
very similar to the XT. WE also have been having problems with their ISH 
kits, both with K/L and HPV. We often get variable staining with ISH also.

All this talk about the Ventana Benchmark is making me nervous. We are 
getting ready to purchase the Ventana Discovery XT, an open system automated 
stainer which uses similar technology as the Benchmark. We plan to use it 
for research immunohistochemistry and in-situ hybridization. Does anyone 
have any exerience with the Discovery?  Please let me know if you have had 
problems with it.
Thanks a bunch,
