Biogenex also has an automated stainer, the Optimax, that can be used for
both immuno and insitu hybridization.  It does not have a heating unit for
denaturation; it uses chemical denaturation.  It has set programs and user
entered programs.  I don't have the address or phone number at hand but I
think Biogenex has a web site.

What are people's experiences with automation of in situ hybridization?  I
am looking for information on equipment, easy of use, company support, etc.
Vendors, if you have information that would help us write bid specs we would
be very happy to view your materials.  Thank you!
