You mentioned that the unit just came out of strorage.  Is it possible 
that some of the seals are dried out and allowing fumes to escape?

Re: [Histonet] Sakura Tissue Processor

Hello again,
Thanks LuAnn for the suggestion.  However, we just had this instrument 
brought out of storage and we put in fresh filter (2 weeks old) and we 
change water and everything.  It is useful to know that it should not be 
doing this, and that we should not need a hood.  Any further suggestions 
are welcome!  Thanks again!

Hi Julie,
Our VIP has a charcoal station in the very last reagent position. The 
activated charcoal helps to absorb xylene fumes. If you are not using 
charcoal in your VIP, or if it hasn't been changed in a while, I would 
recommend filling that container with fresh activated charcoal pieces (not 

powder). I think that I ordered it through Allegiance. It is Tissue Tech 
Activated carbon #4663. If you need me to, I can look up where I ordered 
and let you know for sure. Good luck.
