I am adding to the remarks about Biocare. I have work with them for 3 years and have been exceedingly amazed by their instruments, knowledge, and customer service.

I don't work for VMS, in case you're wondering, we've just had a very reliable and good relationship with them for a long time and we've always been happy with their immunostainers.

Workflow considerations are a primary concern for us in addition to staining consistency and ease of use.  From what was demonstrated to us, the Ultra did not appear to be that "closed" and provided lots of flexibility for running just about anything we wanted but it was a sales pitch.  We are still in the "researching our options" stage.
