The Histo-Tek SL Slide Stainer is an automated slide stainer offering a new level of convenience and standardization for your low-volume laboratory needs, all at a low total cost of ownership.

The Histo-Tek SL standardizes the staining process to optimize quality while reducing errors. It allows for up to 15 programmable staining protocols with up to 35 steps. The multi-directional robotic arm enables either progressive or regressive staining protocols and the 20 or 30-slide racks option make it ideal for low to medium volume laboratories. It is a simple and intelligent instrument for unsurpassed productivity - slide after slide. With it, your lab can run H&E, PAP, frozen sections or special stains. A total of 24 reagent containers, including 2 independent wash stations, enable continuous loading of slide racks and accommodate multiple stain protocols. Optional special stain containers are designed to reduce reagent volumes and costs. Additional relevant features include: built-in fume extraction to improve lab staff safety, and an easy exchange of protocols through USB to standardize protocols throughout the lab while using multiple units.
