AW: [Histonet] Automated special stains

From:"Gudrun Lang"

 It is good for small numbers of special stains and if you have no special
modifications. Twenty positions for slides, twenty-five positions for
reagens. A trichrom needs 10 places and takes ca. 90 min. So with a few
different stains you have to make more runs, what is time-consuming. Now we
need sometime the whole morning to make 15 stains, formerly we did it in one
and a half hour by hand... 
But you need very little place for reagens-storage, you can go away, it is
reliable, the silverstains are very good, it is easy to handle (no brain
needed), the results are each time the same. It is not cheap and sometime
the reagens-time is over before all tests are consumed.

Our younger technicians haven't done a simple Alcianblue by hand since we
have this automat (my histo-heart is crying).
