Hi Travis,

We have used the Milestone RHS 1& 2 for our biopsies for the past three
years and all I can say is it has been a wonderful experience.  Our TAT
was greatly reduced, the biopsies cut much better (especially the
gastric biopsies), the tissue lays flatter and the staining is
beautiful. The other benefit was a good reduction in hazardous chemicals
as you may only have to use isopropanol and paraffin (if tissues are
well fixed). Our pathologists have been extremely happy with the
results.  We also did correlations with our immunohistochemistry section
and have seen no effect on antigen staining.  The tissues actually stay
on the slides better.

Our pathologists are interested in purchasing a microwave tissue
processor for smaller biopsies.  I was wondering if anyone has any
positive and negative feedback.
