Re: [Histonet] Auto stainer IHC/SS


We purchased the Biogenex i6000 about 5 months ago and have had good results with it. We run special stains (alcian blue/pas and PAS for fungus) along with our immunos (mostly Melan A and S-100's). We are using about 17 of their antibodies. The antigen retrieval system is easy to use and consistant. The Biogenex rep., Alan Younger is very good and is a pleasure to work with. 
We wanted to demo the Dako stainer but the Dako rep. was going to charge us $1,700.00 shipping fee for the demo. My Dr. said "No Way".

> Just a quick question in regards to the Autostainer Plus from Dako. I am currently looking to purchase an Automated Immuno Stainer. I have demoed The i6000, Mozaic, and the Nemesis.  I will soon demo the Autostainer Plus from Dako.  They claim to be able to do special stains and IHC. Are any of you running specials on your Autostainer plus?  Any thoughts on this?  Also,  If you have any experience with any of the units any feedback would be appreciated!!!  The i6000 also claims to do specials as well,  I only ran a few,  I never tried to run IHC and specials together on the same run.(They have disposable pipette tips which eliminates the cross contamination issue.)      Any thoughts would be great!!! Thanks in advance!!!
