We have the Leica ST5020, which has the capability to store multiple programs (we have over 10). It has a total of 40 stations, of which 4 are ovens, and another 4 are washes. We also have the (optional) CV5030 which is the coverslipper which attaches to it. While the stainer is not the quickest on the market, it should be perfect for what you're looking for.

Subject: [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.
