The reason that I bought it was due to its large capacity (up to 84 slides); but I find that it is very flexible in terms of using multiple staining protocols and antibodies on the same run.  I work in a biotech research histology lab, so we rarely do the same stain from day to day; so flexibility is key in this environment. The software is very similar to the DAKO machine and the machine itself is the same as the LabVision machine.  One thing I have to say is that BIocare is a very customer-oriented company, which is very important to me.  If I have a question about a stain (or the machine), they are very available to help me out.  Also, if there is a problem with the machine, the repair guy comes right away to fix it.  I can only say that about a few companies that I have dealt with. If you have any specific questions, let me know.Kim Kim Merriam, MA, HT(ASCP)Cambridge, MA ----- Original Message ----From: Christine Tambasco To: histomike@charter.net; histonet@lists.utsouthwestern.eduSent: Wednesday, September 12, 2007 5:25:55 PM=0ASubject: Re: [Histonet]immuno stainersAnybody  have  an  experiences  with  the  Nemisis from BioCare?
