[Histonet] H&E Stainer

Looking for suggestions on an automatic H&E stainer for a research lab. We really only do H&E's on new cases every few weeks but are considering purchasing an automated stainer to save on technician time for the prep of IHC slides we currently do manually.

We have rehydrating and dehydrating stations in separate hoods with a benchtop oven but having an automated stainer to rehydrate/dehydrate and possibly dry would be more efficient. Not looking for suggestions on automated IHC machines, we still prefer to do those protocols by hand.

Potential machine would have to have the capability for multiple programs for H & E as well as prep for IHC slides - rehydration & methanol/H2O2 suppression etc., and  it would be nice to have programming for dehydrating slides after IHC or special stains.
