This system includes the Milestone Histos 5 microwave tissue processor and dry wax impregnation vats. The irradiation is monitored and consistent with the computer controller that holds programs and offers adjustable parameters. The Histos 5 processing system is incredibly clean and passed the physical evaluation; this system is in good cosmetic condition.

Testing & Evaluation

New LIfe Scientific technicians tested and repaired pieces of this system. The controller terminal required a screen and digitizer replacement. The Windows CE operating system does not save the registry which requires the user to re-calibrate the screen with each reboot; a USB mouse is included to save the user unnecessary time re-calibrating the screen each use. The microwave and controller communicate without error, leading the technicians to conclude this is a functional system.
