PolyStainer – Slide Stainer
Automated slide staining is a must for labs that wish to increase their yield. The PolyStainer performs standardized staining procedures that free lab staff from labor-intensive staining procedures. General microbiology and histology labs that seek to reduce sample staining workloads will greatly benefit from its use.
Up to 20 microscope slides are loaded in the PolyStainer basket. Next, the robotic arm dips and stirs these through four exchangeable plastic wells. Slides can be dipped in a fifth drainable water well that ensures the water will be renewed after rinsing each slide basket. Last, slides can be fan dried with or without heat. The four reagent wells in the system enable performing an extremely broad array of stains.
Walkaway Solution: A one push button operation triggers the entire staining procedure.
Unique Design: The PolyStainer was uniquely designed to separate its staining area from the system’s electronics and mechanics, this ensures durability due to separation from highly oxidative reagents.
Staining Protocol Optimization: Ensures no cross-contamination by using the PolyStainer’s rinse well drain to keep rinse water clean. Accelerates stain preparation by drying out slides.
