RE: [Histonet] doing immunos by hand


I have also used the Shandon sequenza for my manual immunos.  We have used
it for 10 years and love it!!!

We use Shando's  "Sequenza" to do only a small number of slides these days
since a DAKO Techmate came along. The Sequenza has the option of an
organiser for several sets of slides but this is not necessary for small
numbers of slides The slides are arrayed each against plastic plates, in
groups of ten.  The plates forms a well at one end and solutions slowly
drain past, accross the face of the slides,  buffers antibodies, chromogens
, whatever.
In terms of a manual system it is sweeter than using trays, boxes.   Once
set in the clip there is no handling until the end.  The waste is held in
the container, staining is even , no ringing of the sections with a pen,
sweet.  Having done batches of a hundred with trays and then the sequenza,
my money is on the latter.
