We have three dako autostainers and we really like them a lot.  We are a
contract research lab so flexibility and system openness is key for us.
The only other instrument that I have demoed is the Leica Bond, but
unless I purchased the research software (which is a bit expensive) I
was tied into using at least one of their reagents and their reagents
are purchased in kits, so for my lab it was not a good fit financially
since I already had two dako stainers on reagent rental.

If you have the space I would demo the different instruments on the
market, see which one works best for you.

Hi Histonetters

I currently use a Dako stainer for my IHC staining. It is a work horse
very little problems. It is a older model that we may need to replace in
near future. What is everyone using out in histoland. I would be
willing to purchase another Dako but I want to explore all avenues
making a decision. What are the pros and cons of the instruments any of
are using. How often is the machine down? What is the capacity? We run
Dako twice daily usually to the capacity of 48 slides. I would like to
only from actual user of the instrumentation, no vendors please. This is
only a fact finding e-mail. Thanks in advance for all your input.
