RE: [Histonet] comments/opinions on Shandon Gemini H & E stainer

From:"Rosa Fields"

We use this stainer, I would assess it as a good purchase.  It is able to accept many racks at once; easy to set up, and the tech-rite support is great.  
It also has a stat start, and the stainer is able to prioritize your racks for you.  The racks also never come across the load and unload stations; I like this feature.  There is also more pots than a lot of the stainers.

Subject: [Histonet] comments/opinions on Shandon Gemini H & E stainer

Hello everyone-
I wanted to see if anyone was willing to share any opinions, experiences or assessments of the Shandon Gemini stainer? This instrument is being considered for purchase by my laboratory. It will be primarily used for routine H & E staining and some cytology staining. We may only have limited ability to demo, so I wanted to see if anyone had anything that they might be willing to share regarding the pros and cons of this instrument. I have not personally used this instrument or many of its design style- so any information would be extremely helpful!
Thanks so much!
