Well I have to admit, curiosity got the best of me and I went on the
website to checkout my (and every histo tech's) competition.

It does seem impressive, and it can crank out 200 slides in 2 hours (one
run equals 2 hours), BUT those are serial sections from one block.  If
you want different blocks cut it can handle up to;  WAIT FOR IT......
HERE IT COMES........ 20, YES! Twenty blocks every run or 2 hours.  So,
if your lab averages 200 blocks a day it would take 10 hours to get them
cut and stained. 

I don't think that would work in my lab, but that's just my opinion.  I
have enclosed the website in case anyone else is curious.
