We bought a VIP5 last fall and absolutely love it.  It is very user friendly
and produces quality tissue blocks.  I just attended the VIP advanced users
training school in California and it was awesome.  They really teach you a
lot of good things and trouble shooting techniques that we probably will not
We have had the old VIP for 14 years with hardly any problems.

I would highly recommend the VIP5.

Hi there all.  My lab is looking into purchasing a new processor and I would
love some input.  We are considering the Shandon Excelsior, the Tissue-Tek
VIP5 and the Leica TP1050.  If anyone has any input on these processors It
would be greatly appreciated.  We are a small dermatopathology lab and we
routinly process 200-300 specimens per week.  All of the specimens are skin
or soft tissue and most are only 1mm to 5mm in size, but we do do some
larger specimens as well.  Thanks in advance for your thoughts!
