We are using the Peloris with a 2 hr, 4 hr and 8 hr protocol.  We run 2
hour protocols throughout the day with an average of 4-5 runs per day
depending on specimen volume.  We really like this processor.  We have
had them for 10 months now, are using factory protocols and have not had
any specimens that have been either under or over processed.  The techs
and the pathologists are very pleased with it.

We are in need of some advice regarding rapid tissue processors.  Models
we are considering:

Sakura Xpress
Leica Peloris
Thermo STP 420

It seems none of these models are perfect in every respect.  I'm
interested in anyone's opinions of these processors and your experience
with them.

All input is appreciated!
