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 has a 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.

Its in Excellent working condition, 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 storage.

Comes with Reagent Bottles and Paraffin Tanks

Reagent bottles, 4 paraffin tanks, and programming magnet are included with this tissue processor. Activated carbon filter bottle and baskets will need to be acquired separately.

The following is included with this system:

- Sakura Tissue-Tek VIP 2000
- Reagent Bottles
- 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.
