Slide stainers automatically apply colored dye, peroxidase, antibodies and conjugated enzymes to a tissue specimen following a specific protocol. The stain penetrates certain cell components to enhance the contrast between the different specimen parts. Stained slides emphasize the areas of interest in the tissue sample, making it easier for lab technicians to analyze under a microscope.
Without a slide stainer, a lab technician must apply the stain by hand. Manual staining takes longer and costs more, so using a slide stainer improves your throughput while maintaining precision. Autostainers are ideal for hematologic smearing procedures and histological, cytological and biological applications.
