We have swithched from the VIP Sakura, older models, to the Thermo Excelsior.  We are currently buying our 3rd and 4th units for the Histology Lab.  They have features we really liked and cut my our exposure to formalin and xylene by almost 90% due to the way the system changes solutions.  Due to the very gently agitation used during processing we were also able to cut some time off our programs for overnight and short cycle biopsy runs.  

We stil use a Leica ASP 300 for bone marrows only as it is what need due to reagent requirements for xylene sub on the last two stations.  

If you have any questions let me know.

I am going to need to purchase a new tissue processor mine keeps breaking down.  What tissue processor would you buy and why?  I would greatly appreciate the help.
