Last summer we had a demo machine- Ventana Nexus.  I was very skepital when I agreed to demo it, but was very surprised at the consistent results and ease of use.  I hated to lose the machine when it came time to give it up.   The hospital did not budget for the machine, but all in all it was a very good asset  while in the lab, and would certainly have automated many routine stains, allowing more work per technician.

Hello everyone!  Does anybody have any experience with using automation to
perform stains like Trichrome, Alcian-Blue Pas, Grocott's Methenamine
Silver, etc.?  I would appreciate any input you may have.
