The Thermo Scientific Excelsior ES (Shandon Excelsior ES) is an economical, walk-away tissue processor. Featuring superior processing quality and cost-effective operation, the Excelsior ES is easily one of the most affordable advanced, traditional reagent instruments available today.

The Shandon Excelsior ES tissue processor uses proven technology to meet the most challenging tissue processing applications. With a unique reagent monitoring and management system, the Excelsior ES delivers significant reagent cost savings. The processor also carries a reagent preheating option that allows for a more consistent and rapid processing.

The Excelsior ES processor is constructed to achieve better workflow and results. Built with a circular design, the tissue processing system has greater temperature uniformity which is achieved as continuous agitation circulates reagents freely around specimens. Baskets are also designed for maximum reagent infiltration around specimens by preventing cassette bunching. Additionally, the glass lid allows viewing during processing.

Operator and specimen safety is ensured with the Thermo Scientific Excelsior ES tissue processor. The system features a built-in downdraft ventilation that minimizes operator exposure to hazardous vapors when the reaction chamber lid is open. With a battery backup, the processor provides specimen protection by safely completing the transfer of reagents during power interruptions.
