I would like to echo Margaret Jennings comments on the Shandon Cadenza,  as
probably the easiest to use, most reliable, and the most versatile
instrument on the
market.  The thing I really like about it is that you can program several
totally different
methodologies into the unit, and call them up with the press of a button.
In fact if our
medical system wasn't in such dire financial striates here in B.C. I would
love to purchase
another unit and use it for doing many of our special stains, such as our
Trichromes, Gram Stains, Elastics etc. as it would be a great time saver.
Another feature
that I like is its simplicity, so when the unit does go down, (which is
seldom) it is easy and
inexpensive to repair.  If you are are just getting into
immunohistochemistry I would highly
recomend it's purchase.  If you are on a very tight budget, as I am, you
could check with
the company and see what they have available in second hand units.  I just
purchased a
very nice one year old  factory refurbished unit with a full one year
warranty for $15,000
Can (That's about $10.000 US.)
