LYNX II automated tissue processors and starter kits

LYNX II is designed to be superior to the Lynx Tissue Processor, with many improvements along with the ability to handle larger size specimens for histology. The Lynx II Automated Tissue Processor for Histology and Microscopy is a cutting-edge tissue processor that can work with any plastic resin or paraffin wax.The Lynx II has an ability to hold 24 reagent vials for EM processing. HP (Histology processing) is optional and can be achieved with 12 larger size reagent vials. Lynx II has two independently operated heating/cooling stations in both EM and HP modes.Lynx II operates in batch mode where tissues may be prepared for EM or HP. Both types of tissues are handled in the same way: The sample arm is loaded with samples, and the reagent carousel is loaded with reagents. The Lynx II rotates the reagent carousel depending on the software chosen by the user until the selected reagent station is at the designated location.
