Re: [Histonet] H&E stainer

From:"Cynthia Robinson"

We have a Gemini and have used it for about 5 years.  I like the stainer a lot, probably because it was our first automated stainer however, it was down from late July until November because we couldn't get parts.  It tends to have issues with mold in the water drainage system.  We pour chlorox down the water rinse areas once per week to control the problem.  Also, the operating system is difficult to program onsite.  I have had to do it on a Sat AM and it took me about 2 hours because the back up disc failed.  If they have a new operating system and have resolved issues regarding replacement parts I would recommend it otherwise we have a Sakura linear stainer for paps that I also like.
