Re: IHC Automatic Stainers??

From:anita dudley <> (by way of histonet)

Dear Mary Kay,  We have used the Biogenex optimax in our lab now for 3 or 4
yrs and we have been very pleased with it. It is an open system and wery
user friendly.  Biogenex is always there too if we have a question. Hope
this helps some,  good luck.
