I use the Ventana Discovery and I add my antibodies manually as I'm in
research and don't feel like shelling out extra for empty containers to
put my Abs in. Do you have an option on the Benchmark to switch the
primary Ab step to "titration" or something like that (can't remember
what the exact step name is but not the autodispense one). I don't even
know if that's an option on the Benchmark but with the Discovery, I can
just open that machine and add it straight at that step. Perhaps you
could get your antibody out of the dispensor and try it that way.

My supervisor wanted me to ask everyone who's posting about the
expiration dates of antibodies: How can you use expired antibodies on a
stainer such as a Benchmark-which will not allow you to start the run
due to expiration dates on the containers?
