RE: [Histonet] Sakura coverslipper Model 6400

From:"Deltour, Douglas D. (HM2)"

I will NEVER go back to glass. Our Sakura tissue-tek SCA coverslippers are
workhorses. They have not needed service in over three years. The previous
supervisor ordered a Tissue-Tek Glass coverslipper and it is collecting
dust. It is not as fast as the tape and the techs feel the need to watch it
as it coverslipps because they do not trust it. There are many myths and
reasons that people do not like tape coverslippers. I will let the others
get into those reasons but for my ulcer I would not have anything else but
the tape. Good luck!

Hi Histonetters,

I'm demoing this automated glass coverslipper for two weeks. The person who
currently repairs (frequently) my tape coverslippers said "if I think I have
problems  now, moving to a glass coverslipper will be even worse".

What are your opinions?
