[Histonet] Pre-treatment module for immunostainers


Dear Histos,

I am in the process of determining which immunostainer to purchase for our
lab.  DAKO and Lab Vision are the main vendors at the moment.  Lab Vision has
a new device that they claim will automate the dewaxing and epitope recovery
on your slide before you apply the antibodies.  

Does anyone have experience with this Pre-treatment module or a device of a
similar nature?  If so, do they work very well, or are they worth the
expense?  I think you can use your own reagents for the various buffers - so
that could keep the reagent cost down some.  Otherwise, they would be happy
to sell you their own products.

Any advice on this matter would be greatly appreciated.  
Thank you in advance for your feedback.
