They are both good instruments. From my experience pricing is high for the Ventana reagents and there seems to be an increase in DAKO pricing from what I see on the Net. Have you looked at the Leica Bond? We found that to be a good fit for us. Started out to add it to our DAKO line, but ended up changing completely. It also does ISH, and is a continuous feed - up to 10 slides at a time.  

Good luck,

The lab I work in has been doing demos on IHC stainers Ventana Benchmark XT and Dako's Autostainer Plus.  We could really use feed back

from current users of both.  We are having a hard time deciding between the two, so any input would be great.

What are the Pros and Cons with both.
