Thermo Shandon Excelsior Tissue Processor with Monitor - Fully-Tested, Working System with a 90-Day Warranty

Take the hassle out of tissue processing with the Thermo Shandon Excelsior. With its integrated reagent pumps, real-time procedure monitoring via its full-color interface, and resource-conscious design, the Excelsior is ready to save your lab both time and supplies.

This pre-owned Excelsior has been fully tested, serviced, and deemed fully operational here at the New Life Scientific tech shop. Our technician ran over a dozen pumping cycles, including overnight cycles at the maximum temperature to stress-test the heaters and thermoresistors. He then ran manual pumping procedures to ensure that the program can start and stop the pump successfully at various tiers.

Though the chassis is stained and there are some slight signs of use in the sample chamber, this machine has been preserved well and can make a great addition to your histology workflow.

Quick & Convenient Reagent Loading

Thanks to its integrated pumps, there's no need to manually transfer reagents into other containers. Just pop one of Thermos official 1-gallon jugs of reagent fluid in the back and the Excelsior will pump the fluid into the rear chambers - no need for pouring and spilling!

Save Reagents and Wax, Allowing You to Stretch Your Budget

The Excelsior was not engineered just for convenience -- it also contains measures to lengthen your reagent and wax supplies lifespan, thus saving you a pretty penny. Its reaction chamber contain sensors that detect how many sample levels you're using, allowing it to dispense only the amount needed.

The system also has a waste wax tray that allows you to empty solely the contaminated wax, leaving you the rest for the next run.
