RE: [Histonet] Automated special stains

From:"Bonnie J. McMahill"

We've used the Artisan since it was first marketed (since 2000 or so).  It does a great job, cost effective, and can vary times/temp according to how you want the stain to look. You do have to yse their reagents, but the costs work out to be very reasonable.  The silver stains are great.  We use the Warthin Starry for H.pylori and the pathologists love it!
