Re: [Histonet] request feedback on benchtop tissue processors

From:Rene J Buesa

  According with my experience Sakura tissue procesors are the best. By the way it does not matter if they are benchtop or "self standing", both have the same capacity. One model or the other will depend on your bench top availability.

  I have been newly hired to do tissue research concerning muscular dystrophy
and genetic cases. The lab wants to purchase a tissue processor and since
the sample volume would be low, we are looking a benchtop model. So far I
have read up about the following models; Leica TP1020, Sakura Tissue Tek VIP
150, TBS ATP-120 by Triangle Biomedical Sciences, and STP 120 spin tissue
processors. Please let me know if you either have one of these models and
what you like or dislike about it. I would appreciate all feedback you can

We are also looking into the purchase of a low volume stainer for
immunohistochemical staining. I would appreciate any feedback on these
models as well.
Thanks very much.
