If you are happy with the Dako, let them offer suggestions to up date your
system, you will certainly have the most flexibility using a dako system as
it is completely open and much cheaper to use in my experience than being
locked into detection systems for closed systems.  For more closed systems,
I have also heard really good things about Vision BioSystems (now
LeicaBioSystems) machines.  Ask Dako and Leica what they can do for you,
make them vie for your business, you will get the best deal if they think
they have to compete.

               I have used both the Ventana and the Lab Vision, (the one
Dako distributes because the only one Dako makes is called Eridan and it
doesn't work) ,and several others not worth mentioning, but if I had my
choice I would probably have  several of each. If there are people with
limited experience and knowledge in the area of IHC, then the Ventana is
along those lines however if you are wanting to work up a novel antibody
from scratch then you need an open platform where you can run an experiment
and the Lab Vision gives you that freedom.

  I have recently been given the assignment of implementing a new and
updated IHC system in our Histology department. We currently use a Dako
Autostainer which we have used for several years and needs to be
updated. I have limited in expertise in this are so am asking for all
you Histonetters who have experience with this to give me some advice on
which stainer to purchase. Let me know all of your thoughts both good
and bad please. Thank you so much for your help.
