Sakura Miles Tissue-Tek VIP 3000 Floor Tissue Processor Model 4619 in Good Condition

Like all of our tissue processors here at New Life Scientific, this Sakura VIP 3000 has been inspected and tested by our technical staff and is ready to be put into operation in your lab. There is some wear on this processor, but that is to be expected with these older models. Continue reading the listing for more information about condition and our testing.

It has a full set of reagent bottles, all 3 paraffin tanks, program magnet and attached power cable. It also comes with a 90-day warranty so you can have confidence in each step of the process, from packaging at our facility to operating it in your lab.

Timeless Design That Still Holds Up

This tissue processor is in good physical condition overall with some normal wear on the exterior (see photos). The 3 paraffin tanks are missing the plastic on the handles, but they can still be used. This system looks good for its age and is built to last for many more years of continued use.

Inspected and Tested by our Technical Staff

Our technician tested this tissue processor according to our standard testing procedure by putting it through complete processing functions in manual and programmed modes, including:

- Testing oven and retort heating: PASSED
- Tested pumping and draining fluids: PASSED
- Tested cleaning cycles: PASSED
- Tested hot and cold cycles: PASSED
- Tested long and short cycles: PASSED

Notice: After powering the processor on, it needs to sit for about an hour before all functions are working normally. Our technician further tested the instrument, but could not find a solution for this. The processor is still fully-functional, but it has an unintended “delayed start” after being powered on.

Since these systems are often left powered on for extended periods of time, this should prove to be a nonissue.

Comes with Reagent Bottles and Paraffin Tanks

Reagent bottles, 3 paraffin tanks, and programming magnet are included with this tissue processor. Activated carbon filter bottle and baskets will need to be acquired separately.

Included with this System:

- Sakura Tissue-Tek VIP 3000
- Reagent Bottles
- 3x Paraffin Tanks
- Programming magnet
- Attached Power Cable

It’s a Tried and True Instrument

Tissue-Teks are certainly an older series than some competition. Their longevity testifies of one thing: reliability. Tissue-Teks are robust workhorses and the VIP 3000 is no exception. Though it’s obviously seen usage over the years, it will continue to perform well for a long time yet.
