I have bought six pathcentres over the past 4 years and have been using them
each 2 to 3 times per day. I would highly recommend them to anyone!

Hi Sylvia,

I don't know if other people have found the same, but we own a Pathcentre
and have had nothing but trouble with it.  Our sister lab in a close-by city
has had similar experiences (and is about to replace it with a VIP - I wish
I had the $$ to do the same!).  Shandon, for their part, have done their
best to fix the problems, but in my view there has just been far too many of
them.

Best of luck!

Aidan

Hi everyone, 
I'd like to hear your views on tissue processors as I'm about to purchase a
new one.  I've been using a Hacker Flex3000 and am considering the Shandon's
Pathcenter, and Hacker's LX120.  I only process samples monthly and only
have about 50 to run each time so speed isn't a huge concern of mine.
Thanks for your thoughts!
