I would buy a Sakura autostainer for H&E (it can also run some HC procedures), but with that work volume you will probably have about 20-25 HC per day and that amount can be handled cheaply manually.

We are a low volume lab and currently do a limited menu of special and
IHC stains on a stainer. We do our H&E's by hand. The stains for our
IHC stainer are getting harder and harder to get. We are considering
sending our IHC's out and getting a stainer for H&E and special stains.
I'd appreciate any ideas from smaller volume labs. We do about 15,000
surgicals per year. I do apologize for asking about this as I know it's
been covered over the years.
Thanks so much!
