Having worked with Dako autostainer for years and currently using Vantana Discovery XT and Leica Bond stainer's, my preference would be the Bond. You have the capability of the Ventana stainer, and being able to unlock the software that will allow you to use it as any other stainer on the market today. Bond also has a favorable per slide cost analysis. If you need any additional info, I would be happy to provide as much as I am can.

Ventana reagents eem to be a little pricey, but if you want a system that you can load and walk away from, it is the way to go.  DAKO is an easy enough to use instrument and is an open system, but they are going to a price per slide kind of thing, if I remmeber correctly.

I prefer the IP from Biocare, as is is an open system and a continuous load instrument.  And it mixes the chromagen online....

he lab I work in has been doing demos on IHC stainers Ventana Benchmark XT and 
ako's Autostainer Plus.  We could really use feed back
from current users of both.  We are having a hard time deciding between the two, 
o any input would be great.
What are the Pros and Cons with both.
