RE: [Histonet] Milestone Pathos vs Sakura Xpress

Apparently the PDF was too large for Histonet to accept.  You can go to
the Sakura website and click on Xpress and open the brochure if you need
these details.

I have no experience with the Pathos but our lab does have the Sakura
Xpress.  I am attaching a PDF of the brochure for the equipment.  Page 4
explains how the microwave itself operates (60 watts).  One thing I want
to add to the previous response is that the 1.5 mm thickness for the
Xpress is not mandatory.  There is allowance for thicker specimens but
the processing time is then lengthened. But I for one like having an
excuse to make pathologists gross properly to begin with. :)

	Dear Histonetters,
	I have heard the Pathos would use 600 Watts for the microwave
processing. I
	can't imagine that this is right. In my opinion this would
destroy the RNS
	structure of any tissue. On the other hand I heard tissues
processed in the
	Xpress would be easy to use for molecularbiological
	Has anybody experience with those instruments, or know anybody
the power of
	the microwave of the instruments.
	Thanks for the help Frank
