RE: [Histonet] Tissue-Tek Xpress x50

I will say the Pathos sounds great but I wonder why one would want to pay for the microwave technology and not take full use of it, meaning you don't overnight process.  But I do want to reiterate that the Xpress provides exceptional quality.  I cannot compare it to the Pathos as it was not available when I purchased the Xpress but the Xpress is easy to use, exceptionally easy to maintain and provides wonderful results.

Hi Everyone,

I suggest you should try Pathos, microwave processor from Milestone. It is much superior in processing quality which I have tested it myself. It has a delay start feature allowing an overnight processing using microwave technology so no worries of overheating the samples.

Trust me it is so wonderful. You may want to visit:

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...
