Sakura Miles Tissue-Tek VIP 1000 Floor Tissue Processor: In Good Condition and Fully Tested

Like all of our tissue processors here at New Life Scientific, this Sakura VIP 1000 has been inspected and tested by our technical staff and is ready for years of continued service. There is some wear on this processor, but it works without issue.

It has a full set of reagent bottles, all four paraffin tanks, a program magnet, and an attached power cable. It also comes with a 90-day warranty so you can have confidence in each step of the process, from packaging at our facility to using it in your lab.

Timeless Design That Still Holds Up

This tissue processor is in good physical condition overall with some noticeable wear on the exterior, including occasional paint chipping around the retort, as shown in the photos. One of the paraffin tank handles is missing the plastic covering as well.

The control panel and retort chamber are in especially good condition. Overall, this system looks quite nice for its age and is built to last for many more years of use.

Inspected and Tested by our Technical Staff

Our technician tested this tissue processor according to our standard testing procedure by putting it through complete processing functions in manual and programmed modes, including:

    - Testing oven and retort heating: PASSED
