RE: [Histonet] Ventana Benchmark Problems


Don't be nervous.  You're always going to hear the disgruntlers more
often and a lot louder.  I have two Benchmarks at the moment and I am
getting ready to bring in an XT and an LT shortly.  I've used open
systems before (DAKO)and even though they were very good, I really love
my Ventana's.  Their customer support is second to none and they have
always been very willing and able to work the little details out.  I
have been in my current position for almost four years and I've yet to
meet my DAKO rep.  We still have an autostainer that takes way too much
time toset up runs in.
Hope this eases your fears a little bit,

All this talk about the Ventana Benchmark is making me nervous. We are
getting ready to purchase the Ventana Discovery XT, an open system
automated stainer which uses similar technology as the Benchmark. We
plan to use it for research immunohistochemistry and in-situ
hybridization. Does anyone have any exerience with the Discovery?
Please let me know if you have had problems with it. 
Thanks a bunch,
