[Histonet] Tissue-Tek VIP 2000-3000

Although Sakura is no longer making parts for the VIP 2000 units, there are 
thousands still in use around the country.  Most companies that service these 
units have been taking them in trade as people upgrade their equipment, then 
using these units to provide parts for units in trouble along the way.  They are 
very dependable (with regular water rinses and periodic PM).

Sakura does still makes parts for and service the VIP E300s, which is the step 
up from the 2000.  If the price were right, and funds were low, I would buy 
either. I have been using these units for many years.

I know I'm a little late regarding your question about Sakura's VIP 2000/3000.  
I'm not sure if you found your answer, but if you're talking about the VIP 
processor that uses a magnet to program, change stations, etc. (and is reddish 
orange in color and may even say 'Miles' on it instead of Sakura) you will want 
to think twice before purchasing it.  These VIP K (series 1000, 2000, 3000) are 
no longer serviced by Sakura nor are there many parts for them.  Sakura's 
manufacturer for parts has stopped making replaceable parts for this particular 
model (they are at least 20 or more years old).  You can go to Sakura's website 
or call their technical support, they will confirm this too.
