The Thermo Scientific Shandon Citadel series is a low-cost, reliable, time-tested carousel-type tissue processor with convenient touch key operation. The series include the Shandon Citadel 1000 tissue processor and the Shandon Citadel 2000 tissue processor. Fitting in most standard fume hoods, the Citadel 1000 Tissue Processor has a capacity of 60 cassettes with organized baskets, while the Citadel 2000 holds 2000 cassettes with organized baskets.


Both the Citadel 1000 and Citadel 2000 allow reagent stations to be easily removed from the unit for replenishing, and their loading station protects the tissue basket from air as the baskets are raised. The Thermo Scientific tissue processors also have a delayed-start feature that may be programmed up to nine days in advance, as well as a hand-held touch key controller for easy operation. The Citadel processor system memory can also store up to four complete programs.


The Citadel 1000 and Citadel 2000 systems are compatible with the Thermo Scientific Shandon Hyperclean 2 Work Station, and have an optional vacuum unit to facilitate efficient and rapid wax infiltration of specimens.
