[Histonet] Special stains and microwave

I can highly recommend the EBS processor microwave.  At a base price of 8,900 (last I checked) it is one of the lowest cost processors on the market.  I don't know if having the flexibility to process in this new microwave may help justify the price?  I purchased mine from Stat Lab, and the customer service from the folks at EBS was outstanding; they even had a prob and air agitator block style holder designed and built for me when I suggested that it should come with one.  I really like our model, and it offers great flexibility in our lab.

Greetings Histonetters,

We have finally come to the point where we need to fish or cut bait in
relation to purchasing a laboratory approved microwave and venting it. 

While I think it would be "cool" to have one, I'm wondering if the cost
is justified to do a handful of special stains that could be done
(though more slowly) in a laboratory oven like the one we already have.

Anyone with the time or desire to opine, please chime in.

Those who have purchased such a microwave, I'll gladly take suggestions.

Thanks in advance
