Thermo Electron Shandon Excelsior Tissue Processor w/ Touchscreen Monitor

Buy Safe with a Warranted + Inspected, Pre-Owned Piece
AdID: 14824

Availability: In stock


Fully Functional Shandon Tissue Processor - Touchscreen Monitor Included

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 Thermo’s 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!

Designed for Supply Preservation, 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 contam-
inated wax, leaving you the rest for the next run.

What’s Included
