RE: [Histonet] automated immunostainers

From:Marion Hiles

We are a Neuropath lab and stain small runs of immuno slides (varies from 5
to 30) on the Optimax Plus machine. It is an excellent machine and very easy
to use and maintain.

Hi All,

As a new developmental biology lab, we are looking to acquire an automated 
immunostainer to stain all types of collagen and probably bone precursor.

Do you have a particular machine to recommend? Although we have looked at 
different stainers (Zymed, Genex, Optimax, Dako, Labvision), each compagny 
seems to have the best machine for our particular needs. We will be 
processing small amounts (compared to hospitals for instance) but need the 
automatisation because of time consuming other histological techniques we 
use. The brochures are all very interesting but hardly reflect the reality 
of laboratory routine work.

Any help is welcome.

Thanks a lot,
