[Histonet]immuno stainers

I had the distinct pleasure (?) of working with other machines, but used 
Biocare's antibodies and you are right. When we had a problem working up an 
antibody or a problem with something else, they were always kind, courteous 
and very patient. Unlike other companies were it took them 3-4 days to fix 
their machine. Only because they were fixing other machines. (what's that 
say about the machine)?

Here was my response, I inadvertantly hit the "reply to sender" button

I have been using a Nemesis for about 4 years now and I love the machine. 
The reason that I bought it was due to its large capacity (up to 84 slides); 
but I find that it is very flexible in terms of using multiple staining 
protocols and antibodies on the same run.  I work in a biotech research 
histology lab, so we rarely do the same stain from day to day; so 
flexibility is key in this environment.

The software is very similar to the DAKO machine and the machine itself is 
the same as the LabVision machine.  One thing I have to say is that BIocare 
is a very customer-oriented company, which is very important to me.  If I 
have a question about a stain (or the machine), they are very available to 
help me out.  Also, if there is a problem with the machine, the repair guy 
comes right away to fix it.  I can only say that about a few companies that 
I have dealt with.

If you have any specific questions, let me know.
