Makes more sense why someone would want to purchase this if you go to
the Japanese translation site

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.
