Thermo Scientific Microm STP420D Automated Tissue Processor 980000 w/ 6 Baskets

Passes Self Check and Supported by our 90-Day Warranty
AdID: 15159

Availability: In stock


Microm STP 420D Tissue Processor in Good
Condition with 90-Day Warranty - Set of Reagent
Bottles Included with 6 Chamber Baskets

With a maximum processing capacity of 420 cassettes and versatile protocol system,
this STP 420D from Thermo Scientific Microm can be a great benefit to histology
laboratories who not only need to process higher volumes of tissue samples, but also
do so with a bit of flexibility.

Our technical staff inspected and tested this tissue processor, confirming it to initialize
without error and for the biopsy chamber cleaning cycle to function correctly. However,
without the service dongle, it’s not possible to access the necessary service functions
to test this processor completely. It’s also overdue for service by 2,166 days based on
the process settings in the instrument software.

For this reason, we are open to negotiating the price to accommodate for the added
cost of further servicing this processor. However, be aware that Thermo Scientific no
longer supports the STP420 for onsite service and parts are limited.

Bring the Confidence of a High Quality Processor into your Lab

When you can benefit from the reduced cost of a pre-owned processor without
needing to compromise on the physical appearance, that’s a big win for your
laboratory. Not only do you save money, but you also get to use an instrument
that you can be proud of. This processor only requires a bit of servicing and it’ll
be ready for operation in your facility.

There is some minor wear and aging on this processor in areas such as the rotary
chamber and reagent cabinet, but that is to be expected with a pre-owned processor.

Tested by Technical Staff - Passes Self-Check

After successfully initializing and performing a self-check on valves and heaters,
this processor was tested by our technical staff. Multiple successful biopsy chamber
cleaning cycles were ran, confirming the ability of the processor to pump fluids in
and out of the biopsy chamber as needed.

As shown in the process settings, service is overdue on this processor by 2,166 days.
To service this instrument, a service dongle is required to clear codes and access the
service features. We don’t have access to such a dongle and so we are open to negotiation
on pricing for the lack of testing and added cost associated in servicing this processor.

The following was tested by our technician:

- Processor initializes without error
- Successful valve and heater self-check
- Multiple biopsy chamber cleaning cycles ran
- Couldn’t get good vacuum readings in chamber - reaches 60 mbar before timing out
- Couldn’t get fluid to pump into the rotary chamber

Comes with Set of Reagent Bottles & 6 Chamber Baskets

A set of 12 reagent bottles and 6 rotary chamber baskets are included with this tissue
processor. Each basket holds up to 60 cassettes if they are arranged in an organized
form. Normally the STP420 is delivered with 7 baskets for a maximum capacity of 420
cassettes, but we do not have a seventh basket to offer with this processor.

The following is included with this system:

- Microm STP 420D Tissue Processor
- 12x Reagent Bottles
- 6x Chamber Baskets
- Power Cable
