[Histonet] Microwave processor
We purchased this year the Thermo Electron "Tissue Wave" made originally
by Energy Beam Sciences and we love it. The reason I find it so nice
after using a Ted Pella at another institution is that it has vacuum
infiltration for the paraffin and the cost of the unit is affordable
compared to Hacker's. The company, Thermo, is very helpful in setting
it up in your lab according to what you want to use it for in
processing, fixation, decalcification, etc. They have a "specialist"
who you can call or Email at anytime for guidance. We are having
excellent results with our processing of cell blocks and tissues that
are 1 mm or less in size. We have protocols for 2-3 mm specimans, but,
are not implementing that into our daily routine yet. I see a great
future in better TAT for all tissues. The GI biopsies look like
"digital" images under the microscope when done in this microwave
process! Any questions, I would be glad to answer or help in any way!
