Re: Processing

From:Matthew Griffiths

Hi Boju,
We use a Pathcentre for our routine processing and a Lieca for a back up. I
personally prefer the Pathcentre over the Leica, I feel the Pathcentre is
more user friendly and much easier to use. We have achieved consistently
good results and had no problems. I would recommend utilising the TelePath
system, this is where Shandon connect to the Pathcentre via a modem link
every so often (I think it's once a month, but I could be wrong), analyse
all the data and then tell you of any problems or potential problems with
the machine. There are a couple of things that I would prefer to be done
differently on the Pathcentre, but you can't please everyone all the time.
Earlier today I was speaking to our Shandon rep at the IBMS congress about
their new processor, I don't know when it's due out, but from what I saw of
the software interface (the machine it self wasn't there) I am very
impressed. It solves the little things on the Pathcentre that I don't like
too much. If you're not in a rush for the processor then perhaps you might
like to contact Shandon and see when the new one is coming out (I've
forgotten what its called).
