Thermo Scientific Shandon Excelsior ES Tissue Processor
The Thermo Scientific Shandon Excelsior ES Tissue Processor is an economical, tissue processor providing exceptional tissue quality.
The Excelsior ES features continuous agitation of circular vessels that evenly distributes reagents around specimens creating greater temperature uniformity and thus providing more consistent processing. Automatic, in-process rotation, along with the Excelcior Reagent Management, greatly reduces reagent usage for significant savings on reagent cost. The automatic in-process reagent rotation also means – no manual handling of reagents necessary. Baskets are designed for maximum reagent infiltration around specimens and less cassette bunching.
The Thermo Scientific Shandon Excelsior ES Tissue Processor features an easy-to-use operating mode for routine operation such as; systematic logging and reporting of quality control data, event records, and program information. The three distinct fill levels in the chamber shortens processing times. The reagent quality of the first alcohol is measured using specific gravity and alerts you when replenishment is needed. The reagent preheating option allows for more consistent and rapid processing.
Features: Daily Operations Mode, an easy-to-use operating mode for routine operation. Systematic logging and reporting of quality control data, event records, and program information. Automatic in-process reagent rotation—no manual handling of reagents. Three distinct fill levels in chamber to shorten processing times. Ten customized programs and five flush options. Seven password-protected areas. Easy-to-read screens with colorful graphics; multilingual
Performance: Unique reagent monitoring and management system delivers significant reagent cost savings. Reagent quality of first alcohol is measured using specific gravity and alerts operator when replenishment is needed. Reagent preheating option allows for more consistent and rapid processing. Circular design allows greater temperature uniformity. Continuous agitation circulates reagents freely around specimens. Baskets are designed for maximum reagent infiltration around specimens by preventing cassette bunching. Glass lid allows viewing during processing. Baskets are microwavable and can be used in conjunction with microwave post-fixation
