I work at IMEB, Inc in San Marcos, CA.
I'm very familiar with the instruments listed in the responses to your question.
What it comes down to is cost, closed system or open system (use your reagents or theirs (Vendors).
The Leica BondMax has it strengths and weaknesses as does the Ventana and Intellipath from BioCare.
They all offer great training and I'm sure you'll get the end result (staining) to meet your needs.
But do you want to buy the majority of your reagents from the vendor selling the instrument; which can be costly...depending on your quantity of slides your lab processes or open source in which you can mix and match the reagents that you prefer. This can or in some cases may not be a cost saver. 

Any questions, please contact me.

Subject: [Histonet] IHC and ISH

Hi everyone,

I am currently in the process of evaluating IHC equipment to replace my old Dako Autostainers. The pathologists I work for are interested in bringing ISH into our lab. My questions are, what IHC instrument have you found works the best for IHC and ISH, and what kind of training did your personnel go through to become qualified to perform ISH?

Thank you!
