The MD-Stainer is designed to be used by laboratory professionals with the right training in immunohistochemistry techniques. The aim of the MD-Stainer is to facilitate the procedures used in such techniques: applications of immune-reagents (Deparaffining and antigenic recovery, antibodies, detection systems, etc.) to sections of tissue, cell cultures, liquid cytology samples or smear on slides. This system is designed to automatize the manual staining methods used routinely in Immunohistochemistry and “in situ” hybridization.
The MD-Stainer includes the possibility of creating protocols defined by techniques and also the programming of each slide individually.
The system provides intuitive programming routines, reagents, slide maps and information on screen regarding the time of start/end of each technique. The user will be able to create and save an unlimited number of protocols with the desired number of reagents and washings.
From 1 to 36 slides can be processed. With the possibility of each one having different protocols, reagents and dispensation volumes.
The MD-Stainer maximized the efficiency by using very low volumes of reagents and washing buffer, reducing costs. The system allows the flexibility of optimizing the volume of the reagents, up to a minimal volume of 85ul by each step of the technique.
The MD-Stainer is designed to track a wide variety of data. You can generate reports by the patient; reactive information used or performed cycles.
