Fully-Functional Sakura VIP 2000 Tissue Processor
with 90-Day Warranty from an Experienced Dealer

Like all of our tissue processors here at New Life Scientific, this Sakura VIP 2000
has been inspected and tested by our technical staff and is ready for years of
reliable service. There is some wear on this processor, but it functions flawlessly.

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

Timeless Design That Still Holds Up

This tissue processor is in good physical condition overall with some noticeable
wear on the exterior, including some chipping paints, scuffs, and scratches as
shown in the photos. This system looks good for its age and is built to last for
many more years of continued use.

Processor Works Great, Noted Technician

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:

- Heating the oven and retort
- Pumping fluids
- Draining fluids
- Cleaning cycles
- Hot and cold cycles
- Long and short cycles

The rotary valve was cleaned by running multiple fluid cycles and alcohol through
all ports. We ran 2 dozen complete cycles, including maximum heat cycle to making
sure everything will function under normal operating conditions.

Seals on the reagent bottles, ovens, and retort were cleaned and checked for leaks
and blockages, finishing by flushing the system with alcohol to clean the lines before

Comes with Complete Set of Reagent Bottles

A complete set of 13 reagent bottles, activated carbon filter bottle, 4 paraffin tanks,
and a programming magnet are included with this tissue processor.

The following is included with this system:

- Sakura Tissue-Tek VIP 2000
- 13x Reagent Bottles
- Activated Carbon Bottle
- 4x Paraffin Tanks
- Programming magnet
- Attached Power Cable

Its a Tried and True Instrument

Tissue-Teks are certainly an older series than some competition. Their longevity
testifies of one thing: reliability. Tissue-Teks are robust workhorses and the VIP
2000 is no exception. Though its obviously seen usage over the years, it will
continue to perform well for a long time yet.

Its the premium performance at our pre-owned price that makes this unit a
worthwhile investment.
