Hi Haley, we've been using this H & E stainer and tape coverslipper for about 5 years with pretty good results even though we do not have the piece to link the two together. The very few problems we have had are related to lack of daily maintenance which is minimal. We are in the process of "handing it down" to cytology and trying to use the new Symphony for H &E because of the tracking system option. The folks that do the microtomy are not happy because using the trays are more time consuming due to the "learning curve" (we are told), which is the trade-off. I hope this helps.

Subject: [Histonet] Equipment selection

Hi all,

I am trying to decide on what equipment to purchase. I have picked the processor, microtomes, embedding centers and a few other pieces, but now I still need to decide on the H&E Stainer and the immunostainer. My options I have in front of me are for the H&E stainer are Sakura Prisma stainer/film coverslipper and the Leica ST5020-CV5030 stainer/glass coverslipper. For the Immunostainer, I am looking at the Dako Autostainer and the Leica Bond Max. Any advice on any of these instruments would be greatly appreciated. I am trying to finalize my decision pretty quickly. Thank you in advance for any input.
