I agree. THe Peloris is a robust processor that handles all our routine 
overnight and 2 hour cycles easily.  Also love the reagent managment system 
which assesses reagent purity.  It does a good job on our skin specimens.

Hi Jane,
We just bought 2 Peloris processors from Leica. We can process in as little 
as 1 hour (usually biopsy specimens). Each machine has 2 processing chambers 
and can process up to 300 blocks per chamber. It was a good choice for us 
since we do appx 15,000 cases a year...Maintenance is easy....I use the 
Pathos from Leica (microwave technology) at my part time job processing 
dermatology specimens (appx 10,000 cases a year) and it works great. Contact 
Leica for some brochures on their equipment.
Hope this helps...

I know this question repeatedly occurs,  but our tissue processor
last week.  We are a small hospital lab  doing about 2500 cases a year
(6000 specimens.)  Would anyone have a recommendation on a new
processor for our size lab?  An Excelsior was brought in for demo (not
sure what model)  but that one was being discontinued and we were
waiting to see the new model. We were also waiting on a "new"  model
to bring in for demo-but that has not happened yet.   Any advice would
be greatly appreciated.  Thanks Jane
