A couple of places that come to mind are Belair (800-783-9424), Medical Equipment Source (www.medequipsource.com), and  Mayflower (800-287-9801). I know that they sell used equipment, you could inquire about a rental.
Good luck.

Subject: [Histonet] Embedding Center Questions

Hi All:

My 23 year old Shandon Embedding Center may be ready to give up the ghost.
It has had two repairs of the coolant system for the freezing plate over the last year.
Now a thermo-resistor has burnt out, so that the wax reservoir with no long melt the wax.

Does anyone know of a company or companies that lease/rent histology equipment?
Are there companies who sell used equipment?
Also, what do people recommend as far as a new embedding center, in case we can afford it?
I am in the Boston area.

In the meantime, maybe I can jury-rig something, since it is only the wax reservoir that is down.
The cassette holding tank, hot plate, and freezing plate are OK for the moment.
Maybe I can melt a few jars of wax, and use a transfer pipet to fill the molds?
Any ideas?
