Designed with fast processing and smooth operation in mind, the Sakura Tissue Tek VIP 5 is one of the most versatile tissue processors available in the market. Allowing easy addition of cassettes, even during processing, the VIP 5 provides complete information at a glance through a full-text display, and facilitates reagent management through cassette counter and reagent usage counter features.

The Tissue Tek VIP 5 tissue processor automatically manages processes including reagent transfer, continuous mixing, and bottle connection check. The processor system also monitors all steps taken during processing to ensure specimen and system protection. With its user-friendly software, the VIP 5 enables operators to control reagents, rename solutions and programs, and program cleaning cycles according to facility requirements

Moreover, Tissue Tek VIP 5 processors clean paraffin by degassing the oven, ensuring sanitized paraffin without the need for additional retort cleaning cycles. The programmable water rinse virtually eliminates alcohol fumes in the retort. The filtration process undertaken is environmentally secure as this Sakura tissue processor combines water and a disposable activated-carbon cartridge filter.

Equipped with all these features, the Sakura Tissue Tek VIP 5 tissue processor guarantees streamlined performance and workflow.
