We have 2 Leica ASP 300 Tissue Processors. The newest one was installed yesterday. The ease of operation and the reliability are beyond compare in my opinion. The remote fill and drain make it so easy to change out the solutions. I have been most impressed with this tissue processor. What few problems that I have had were immediately addressed and repairs made in a timely fashion. The technical support is superior and have been most helpful to me. My Leica (Vashaw) Representative, Tonia Crook, is top notch in her support and I can call on her at any time for assistance. Although the instrument reliability and ease of function is important, if you don't have the support of the company in resolving any problems, the instrument is worthless. In my opinion, you could not buy a better tissue processor. Its versatility in being able to program different protocols is a definite plus. I'm sure that you are aware of all of this if you have had the opportunity to demo this processor. Our ASP 300 has been a true work horse, easy to operate and maintain.

I hope that this information is useful to you.

Hello histonetters,
Do you have anything to share and compare the two instrument with regards to their productivity and reliability. I am caught in a dilemma of my decision which one is best as both machine have successfully shown the quality of a machine we are looking for but there must be a loop hole to distinguished the two. Your honest opinion will be highly appreciated.Please do not compare these two to other machine like VIP. I am sorry if I am putting anyone of you on this as this is my first highly priced equipment to be purchased under my care. I will based your opinion on my records so please users bring it on. 

Thank you very much.
