Re: [Histonet] Tissue processors/Recyclers

From:Rene J Buesa

Peloris and Xpress are two completely different technologies. Peloris is a conventional tissue processor with the capability of rapidly increasing the temperature to boil the 2-propanol at low pressure and 85C (if you want to avoid using xylene).
Xpress has half the retorts (2 or 1 depending on the model) as a microwave assisted chamber, and the other half as a conventional tissue processor. The differences in price are also high. Peloris has two chambers and operate quite conventionally, Xpress is designed to have a constant flow of processed blocks every 1-2 hours. The impact on the schedule and working conditions of the laboratory makes them completely different instru

We are currently exploring the advantages of recycling our waste solutions as
well as a new tissue processor. The two processors we are looking into are the
Peloris from Leica and the Sakura Xpress. I would appreciate hearing the
advantages and disadvantages of each, and if anyone is recycling the Sakura
processing reagent or the Leica Waxsol. If vendors of recyclers are out there,
please feel free to answer regarding the solutions.
