Re: [Histonet] Leica Peloris

From:"Joe Nocito"

we just purchased two, with a third on the way. We took off the xylene and 
the tissue has processed better. We had to monkey around with our fatty 
specimens a little. We run a 4 hour and an 8 hour xylene-free program. Next 
week, we try the 1.5 hour xylene free on real specimens. We are trying to 
process throughout the day. So far, I like them. But, need to see the 
response time if a repair needs to be made. This company has not had a good 
track record in the past.

Do you use xylene on the Peloris?

I just purchased a Peloris about 3 months ago. Love it.  I can process
all thru the day and it has made a huge impact on turn around times. We
cut fewer blocks thru out the day and I think it processes fatty
specimens better.  I have a few small issues, but I have been very happy
with the processor.

Any labs out there using the Leica Peloris Processor, if so please send
me some feed back on you experience with the Peloris. Thanks in advance.
