I am currently setting up a hist lab from scratch in a well established
hospital.  I will be the only tech for prob the next year or two.  When I
asked him, the pathologist I will be working with suggested that I get a
processor with a modem on it so that I can troubleshoot from my home
computer, if needed.
Every lab I can think of doing general histology, uses a Tissue-Tek, and
they all love them; however, they do not yet come with a modem.
Tissue-Tek's new model comes out 1-2001, but even if it will contain a
modem, I can't wait that long.  My question is:

Should I go with a Tissue-Tek VIP processor (do to the excellent reputation)
and take the chance of having only a phone call to wake me so that I have to
help a Med-tech over the phone troubleshoot or drive to the hospital myself?
Should I go against what everyone else is doing and get a Shandon or a
Ventana which has the modem which I can reach and troubleshoot, if needed,
from home?
OH and also;
What do you guess use and what would you change on it if you could?

Thanx in advance!  stacey  <>
