We have two Peloris processors in our Histology Laboratory and we run them around the clock.  In addition, I have been using the Bond automated IHC platform in my Immunopathology/Morphologic Proteomics Laboratory since 2007.  We now have 4 Bond Max instruments and 1 Bond III; absolutely incredible machines.  I would not trade them for anything; not even for two more College National Basketball Championships!

Subject: [Histonet] I need opinions on Leica instruments

I am considering the Peloris II tissue processor and the Bond IHC stainer for our lab.  We are a 400 bed regional hospital with a growing outreach business.  We have had Thermo Excelsior processor for years and have never really been happy with it.  Of course our VIP is as reliable and consistent as they come.  We currently have a full Ventana line for IHC (2 ultras, 2 XTs, and BMK special stainer).  I would appreciate any feedback about Leica's line of products.  Please include experiences good and bad.
Thank you in advance.
