We are looking/hoping for some opinions on some equipment that we are considering for our lab.

In the tissue processor line up we have:  Leica's ASP6025; the VIP 6; Thermo's STP 420ES and Milestone's Logos.

The IHC Stainer contenders are:  Ventana's Ultra; Leica's Bond III or an updated version of what we currently use - the Labvision Autostainer.

It's especially important to us to hear the opinions of techs who work with these instruments, as the selections here are being made primarily by those who do not.  We are a community hospital with about 5800 cases/year.  We average 25-30 IHC slides/day.  Thanks in advance!
