I only have experience with the Tissue Tek VIP processors, but it is all
good. The newest model is much easier to use (program)than the old one
and has better fittings and reagent bottle hookups. In 15 years of
histology experience (and 5 different processors) I have only
experienced one malfunction with a Tissue-tek VIP processor.

Hello my knowledgable friends!

Our main tissue processor just signed off this week, for good!
Obviously we need to scramble fast to replace it. We have narrowed
the search to 3 instruments:
                                     1)   Leica- TP 1050
                                     2)   Shandon Hypercenter XP
                                     3)   Tissue-Tek VIP E300
 I would REALLY appreciate any and all
comments about any of these processors (likes/dislikes) to aid in our
decision. Your experience is invaluable to us!  Thanks in advance.
