Hello HistoNet,
I am in the process of evaluating new tissue processors. We are a small histo lab and average 50 blocks per day (Sometimes 20, extremely busy days 130). We process a lot of GI biopsies, tonsils, etc as most children's hospital's do. We need a good work horse that can handle the occasional breast tissue, tumor, or colon, but will give us excellent results with the smallest of biopsies without the troubles of breaking down every month.
Has anyone evaluated the most common tissue processors lately and what were your findings? No vendors, please. We are not considering microwave processing due to our small size and the costs at this time.
Thank You all,
Dennis Hahn, HT (ASCP)
