Dear Prof. van den Broek:
  During my career I have used many tissue processors and the one I would recommed you is the Sakura VIP (any model/capacity). It has been for me the most reliable and because of high quality processing. It is what we call here "a work horse".

  Dear colleagues, dear friends,

We are lucky to have a budget to buy a new tissue processor. At the moment,
we are interested in the following instruments (in alphabetical order):

* Sakura Tissue-Tek VIP 5 Vacuum Infiltration processor

* Shandon Excelsior

* Leica ASP 300 advanced smart tissue processor

* Microm STP 420 enclosed tissue processor

I would like to hear your comments, experience with the different
instruments, the pro's en con's, etc.

Thanks in advance for your helpful reactions.

Kind regards,
