[Histonet] re: Biocare Decloaker HIER

For those of you who use Biocare's Decloaker for HIER on regular cases (not prion protein retrieval), could you tell me how long you do HIER with these machines?  I normally do my prion cases in a Decloaker for 20', with a 25' cooldown, but I suspect that regular tissues don't need that length of time at high pressure/temp.  I have an extra Decloaker and am considering switching to this device for my normal case work HIER, if it's time efficient.

Please reply privately.   Thanks.
