Hi Valerie,
I would like to rave about the Leica stainer. We have had it for about a
year now and are very pleased. It took only part of an afternoon to program,
it was running within 24 hours after delivery, and has been running ever
since. The transition was incredbly smooth considering how particular our
pathologists can be. There are enough programs on it for us (15), however, I
don't know if that would be true for a more diversified lab. What I like the
best is that the time for the hemo does not need to be changed during the
week. We used to have to increase the time as the hemo got older/weaker.
This may be true of all automatic stainers? We have had no mechanical
problems whatsoever. I highly recommend this instrument.

Hello all,
In my previous requests, I got lots of GREAT feedback on tissue
processors and embedders, microtomes and IHC stainers.  Now we are
narrowing down the search for  automated H&E type stainer.  Anyone have
strong feelings for these instruments and care to rave/vent about their
personal experiences?
Thanks in advance!
