RE: [Histonet] Shandon Cytofunnels

From:"Horn, Hazel V"

I wanted to comment on the new cytofunnels.   At first, we had a devil
of a time getting them to work, we had no one show us how.  BUT, now
that we have gotten used to them we really to like them.  Load them up,
spin and throw away.   Very convenient.   I wish they came in a box like
the old funnels, the plastic tray is a bit cumbersome and takes up a lot
of our couterspace.

This is in response to the messages posted on Histonet that Thermo
Electron Corporation is recalling all the old Cytospins(r) and no longer
supplying the "re-usable" chambers (clipped Cytofunnels(r)) and
stainless steel clips.  We would like to clarify that the above
statements are not true.

Thermo Electron is the original manufacturer of the Shandon Cytofunnels.
We are also the only manufacturer supplying Cytofunnels in 2 versions,
the original Shandon Cytofunnels with Shandon Cytoclips(r) and the new,
clipless Shandon EZ Cytofunnels.

There is no plan to recall any Cytospin from the field as the new EZ
Cytofunnels are functional on Cytospin 2, 3 or 4 without any

Currently the EZ Cytofunnels are available in the United States, United
Kingdom and Germany together with the conventional clipped cytofunnels.

Eventually both types of cytofunnels will be available worldwide.  We
leave the choice and decision to our customers.

Thank you for the opportunity to correct the previous postings.
