Unique tissue processor directs the flow of all reagents, waxes and cleaning solutions to and from the processing chamber through a maintenance-free single rotary valve within a heated chamber.

Key Features

  • Available as a tabletop or floor model
  • Equipped with an onboard computer operating system with color touchscreen controls
  • Unique “bubbling” circulation feature forces fluid uniformly through the layers of tissue cassettes
  • Bubbling frequency is programmable to provide the proper amount of mixing without overstressing specimens
  • Tissue infiltration can be enhanced by separating tissue cassettes with row dividers and spring organizers
  • Ensures high-quality processing while minimizing operator involvement and cleaning time

Reagent Management

  • Reagent purge can be programmed to cycle automatically runs after removing processed specimens
  • At the end of the purge process, excess xylene vapor is removed from the reagent system through an activated charcoal filter
  • Since the filter is in an enclosed container, replacement is safe and easy
Operating System
  • For improved reagent quality management, the ATP1 computer automatically monitors the program status and selects the cleanest reagents based on past processing cycles
  • System can propose reagents that need to be changed and select the schedule accordingly without the user having to manually rearrange bottles
  • Quality management can be controlled by specific groups or by individual bottles
  • Optional dot matrix, 40-column printer can be connected to an RS-232 port
Reagent System
  • Fully enclosed reagent/pneumatic system's innovative design eliminates the need for overfill sensors to regulate retort filling and the potential escape of toxic fumes
  • Excess reagents are returned to the appropriate container through a unique bottle design in combination with the chamber overfill collection system
  • Activated charcoal filtering process and the enclosed pneumatic reagent system minimize exposure of laboratory personnel to noxious fumes
Safety Features
  • ATP1 quality control program monitors the concentration of each batch of reagents and displays a pass/fail report
  • Critical parameters, such as heaters, errors and alarm system status, are checked automatically by a diagnostic system
  • Results are displayed and the operator is alerted to replace reagents as needed
  • Computer lockout feature allows the user to program a security code for accessing the system
  • In the event of a power outage or instrument failure, an optional auto dialer modem can be used to alert appropriate personnel
  • Up to three emergency telephone numbers can be programmed in the optional auto dialer (sold separately; contact your Fisher Scientific Customer Service Representative for ordering information)
