Re: Tissue Processor Adivce

Sorry to hear about your processor but we own a Pathcentre too and fortunately have had no problems with it.  In fact, we're quite pleased with it.  What sort of problems have you been running into??

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!

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!
