RE: [Histonet] autostainers & TMA's
We currently have a demo of the Biogenex i6000. We love it. You can modify
each individual slide, instead of editing a whole new procedure. We mostly
wanted it for the random access. We already have the Artisan by Dako. A
reliable instrument but with limited kit availability.
