The last retort is a heated, empty "bath" should NOT leave the tissue there for very long at all.

Both Xpress models have been engineered to process in a continuous flow of cassettes not for overnight (delayed) processing. Perhaps you could leave the cassettes in the last retort, but I am not sure about that nor it is recommended, and it would defeat the design of the instrument.

Is anyone using the Tissue-Tek Xpress x50 out there? Do you like it? Can you do traditional overnight processing or is it only for rapid processing? Any feed back would be helpful...
