The Milestone™ RHS-1® Microwave Vacuum Histoprocessor System uses microwave technology to provide a reliable tissue processor that delivers high-quality results in a very short amount of time. It can process tissue samples in less than three hours or biopsies in under 30 minutes. Complete processing is accomplished in only three steps using only one reagent and parrafin, with no need for xylene wash.
In addition to tissue processing the system comes with procedures for histochemical staining, fixation, high-temp decalcification and gross hardening applications. All runs are documented and saved on the harddrive or can be printed out via the RS232 port.
User friendly with a touchscreen interface, all programs are preinstalled. Users are welcome to create their own custom protocols. Special histomodules (not included) allow for proper chamber positioning and heat distribution and the integrated vacuum module insures correct tissue infiltration.
We don’t usually work on this type of instrument so we do not provide technical advice or any consumables. The unit is missing the chamber containers which can be ordered from Milestone. We managed to find the passwords to access the Adminstrator and Service accounts (provided) and ran the machine through its paces and everything works as it should, as far as we can determine. The vacuum pump runs well, the microwave unit operates well and the controller works. The unit shows some signs of normal wear and tear and was in storage for only a short time before we bought it.
Should you buy this unit we take great care in shipping it to you. We give the customer the option of shipping this in cardboard boxes or for an additional fee of $150 we can build a wooden crate for shipping, lined with 2″ foam padding in a 3/4 AC plywood crate. Even the cardboard is foam lined and all modules will be bubble-wrapped as well. We want to assure you your instrument will arrive in one peice, whether you are a hundred miles away or on the other side of the world!
NOTE: Missing sample vessels. Otherwise works fine.
