automated IHC

From:Jerry Chi-Yuan Hu <>

Hello Everyone,

One of our collaborators doing IHC has ranted and raved about how much
easier his job would be with an automated IHC stainer.  We will also be
doing IHC in our lab, and I would like to know at which point such a
machine would be helpful (for instance, if somebody does 10 slides a day
vs somebody who does 90 slides a day).  I welcome any vendors to contact
me directly so that I can better understand which steps in the IHC
staining process will be automated in each model.  If somebody has a
favorite model I would also be interested in hearing why.  Any comments
will be greatly appreciated.
