RE: [Histonet] Question about Leica Autostainer XL

I would call my service tech. with your Leica distributor.  Ours has
never had a smell and the arm is not overly warm.

Subject: [Histonet] Question about Leica Autostainer XL

I have a question about a Leica Autostainer XL.  We are getting the most
peculiar odor from it during staining and none of us can quite describe
it.  One of our histotechs is very sensitive to it however.  We have
changed the filters and the odor is still there.  Also, the arm
mechanism is very warm--almost hot--and we were wondering if this is
normal for operation.  Thanks so much for any and all comments.
