[Histonet] stainer and coverslipper recommendations for periodic use

Histonet colleagues,

We are interested in purchasing an automatic stainer and  glass 
coverslipper, however as only part of a large research facility our 
histology laboratory receives sporadic use.  Depending on studies, our lab 
may have several weeks or months of intensive use generating thousands of 
slides followed by weeks or months of disuse.  Given our unique work load, 
I am concerned that such periods of inactivity maybe hard on a stainer and 
coverslipper.  Keeping that in mind, can anyone recommend a 
stainer/coverslipper that can withstand inactivity and or that can be 
easily put in hibernation mode until needed?  The stainer would be used 
primarily for H &E.  Vendors please feel free to contribute.

Thank you in advance!
