Ask for a demo if that is the processor you like. I am demoing a Peloris
from Leica at this time. Processes great.

Subject: [Histonet] Tissue processor info requested

I would appreciate your thoughts and advice on tissue processors, both
conventional and microwave. I have just been notified that I may be able
to purchase a tissue processor...and they would like the quote by
tomorrow morning. My previous research on processors is now outdated. 
I run a small research histology core with a low volume and a low
budget. I mainly work with mouse tissue (heart and lungs). Most of the
tissue that I work with is used for IHC, which is why I am somewhat
hesitant to go with a microwave processor. 
I have found a unit that looks interesting, the Microm STP-120, but I am
concerned because it uses a centrifugal cycle. That would not be a
problem with the hearts, but the lungs that I work with are inflated.
Has anyone had a problem with the unit?
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.
