Re - Automated staining machines

From:Clarke Ian <>

Hi All,

I would like to request  information regarding the Cytologix Artisan
staining system and would like to hear from users of the system.
Particularly on how cost effective it is, cost of detection kits staining
solutions and how this might compare to the Ventana Nexes?

Is there any trouble in performing special stains/immuno methods in adjacent
positions and what kind of maintenance is required?How long does it take to
perform an immuno stain, e.g. L26,estrogen?How long does a special stain
take  e.g. Reticulum or a Gomori's Methenamine Silver?

Thanking you in advance.
