RE: Automated special stains systems

From:"Cummings, Lori Ann"

We have Ventana, DakoCytomation and have demo'd Artisan for specials, IHC,
and ISH.  Artisan is above and beyond the best for specials.  Both the
Ventana and the Dako Autostainer have some stains that work well, but
overall for specials, Artisan is best.

DakoCytomation is in the process of optimizing IHC applications on the
Artisan to meet their standards of excellence in that area, too.

Good Luck.
