We have had a fair amount of problems with the Leica TP 1050.  We also have
a Tissue Tek VIP which is about 13 years old.  We had another processor
approved on our budget for this year, and without a doubt, we will get
another VIP.  It has been very reliable, and when we have had problems, it
has usually been due to user error, not a mechanical problem.  There is a
new model coming out in June of this year (I think).  It will have the
closed transfer system for changing reagents (as does the Leica).  I really
think you should check out a VIP.

Subject: Tissue Processors

I'm currently looking to buy a tissue processor.  I have had the Leica TP in

for a Demo as well as the Ventana.  So far they fair well, the tissue is 
fine, no problems cutting.  I would like to know if anyone has any opinions 
on these two, and also the Sakura.  I haven't been able to get the Sakura in

for a Demo, and time is running out.  I have to make a decision soon.
