RE: [Histonet] Microwave Tissue Processors

From:"Bartlett, Jeanine"

I went to Miami to see the Sakura processor in action and processed blocks to bring back with me.  The IHC performed on these were fine.  I also personally have a Milestone TT/Mega and did a project for a college internship where I evaluated various tissue types processed on this machine and tested them with various antibodies using our established IHC protocols.  No only did they stain fine, one of them (our anthrax antibody) actually stained better than when processed by our traditional methods.
