Sakura Tissue-Tek VIP E300 Benchtop Tissue Processor - Includes Full Set of Reagent Bottles

Like all of our tissue processors here at New Life Scientific, this Sakura VIP E300 has been tested and confirmed fully functional by our technical staff and is ready for years of continued service.

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

Charcoal cartridge, reagent fluid, and cassette baskets will need to be acquired separately

Thoroughly Cleaned and In Good Condition

After arriving at our tech shop looking a little rough, we made sure to put in the elbow grease to get this E300 looking as nice as possible. It now only has some minor issues, such as chipped paint on the top, around the retort.

Additionally, the processor's internals are in excellent condition. There is virtually no signs of spills or leaks inside.

This processor will be leaving our shop in much better condition than it was upon arrival.

Please see our photos for a more detailed look at its cosmetics.

Fully-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:

    - 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. A minimum of 12 complete cycles, both long and short, were performed during testing to ensure complete functionality.

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

The oven and retort temperatures have been calibrated as well.

Comes with Complete Set of Reagent Bottles

A complete set of 13 reagent bottles and 4 paraffin tanks are included with this tissue processor. Cassettes, baskets, and activated carbon cartridge will need to be acquired separately.

The following is included with this system:

    - Sakura Tissue-Tek VIP E300
    - 13x Reagent Bottles
    - 4x Paraffin Tanks
    - Attached Power Cable
