[Histonet] Anyone Using LaserTrack PH6 or PH8 Tissue Cassette Printer General Data

We switched to those a couple of years ago.  If you are low volume they should work fine for you.  We are high volume and own around 20, we have had to have numerous lasers replaced which are very expensive, around $13,000.  The first laser went out during warranty which prompted us to get a service contract that covers the laser, they don't typically cover them under the standard contract.  I'm not 100% sure but I believe all of the replacement lasers are rebuilt, because I tried to contact the vendor of the laser to get one for less and it seems like they are no longer made.  Don't quote me on that though, they might have a special OEM deal with the laser manufacturer.
