[Histonet] Need opinions on H&E stainers please!

We are using the Sakura Prisma with attached coverslipper; it is a workhorse
and allows for the use of what ever reagents/stains that you prefer. We are
running our H&E and H Pylori stains simultaneously.   We experienced a small
problem with the leveling of the instrument at the initial set up but once
that was corrected it has been working well since then.  The only draw back
that I can see with the attached coverslipper is that the slides take longer
to dry than with the older model.  The slides are kept horizontal rather
than vertical so the xylene doesn't run off.

Our laboratory will be purchasing new H&E stain equipment in the near
future.  We would like to hear the pros and cons out there for the
Thermo-Shandon Gemini, Sakura Prisma, Leica Autostainer XL and the Ventana
Symphony. Thanks in advance for your input.
