The Retriever was originally developed for sterilizing surgical instruments
in a physicians office setting. Although its easy to operate and costs less
than a decloaking chamber, it doesn't monitor or display the operating
temperature, lacks a pressure gauge (which provides performance verification), and
you can't modify the time or temperature settings. It may be marketed for
retrieval, but when you consider its limitations and its pricetag, it just
doesn't measure up. I thoroughly evaluated the Retriever before including it in
a review of retrieval methods and devices that was published a few years ago.

Subject: [Histonet] Retriever 2100
Has anyone used the Retriever 2100 from EMS? It is a pressure cooker for
antigen retrieval and I would like to know how it compares to the
Decloaking Chamber from Biocare which is what I currently use.
Any information will be helpful.
