RE: [Histonet] Microwave Tissue Processors

Hi Donna,

Do did your pathologists not notice any significant differences between
traditional and microwave processing?

The Pathos will allow you to do all that your are interested in doing on
biopsy samples and on tissue cut up to 5mm thick.  I have one in my lab.
You can batch up to 210 cassettes. I have not worked with the Sakura
unit but I know that the thickness of the samples on the unit are
limited and batch volumes are smaller.

Hi All,
My lab director is interested in purchasing a processor which will
allow us to process batches of cases throughout the day, and serve as a
backup to our two VIPs.
I would greatly appreciate knowing what experiences you all have had
with the various microwave processors available. I have particular
interest in the Pathos from Milestone since it is automated, but I am
open to all possibilities.
