Dr Perl,  if I understand correctly, the Lab Vision stainer is known as the
DAKO in the USA.  I recommend it highly.  It is an open system, easy to
operate, and cost effective.  It is programmed for their detection systems
and their antibodies.  However, the antibodies can be any companies or your
own.  You can also program it to use other detection systems.  If you are
doing any experimental or research work, it is excellent.  Also, for
routine work, the cost comparisons are quite competitive with anything else
on the market.  If possible, I recommend you bring in each one for a 2-3
week demonstration in your own facility with your own people before making
the decision.  That allows you to truly see which one is the best for your
set up, skill levels and cost analysis....sharon osborn
