Product Description Wescor Model 7720 Aerospray Acid Fast Bacteria Stainer & Cytocentrifuge stains microscope slides smeared with materials containing acid-fast microorganisms such as culture materials, body fluids, or exudates. Wescor reagents are tailored to give superb results in our Acid-Fast Bacteria Slide Stainer/Cytocentrifuge. Never before has staining microorganisms been so easy, fast or economical. The Acid-Fast Bacteria Slide Stainer/Cytocentrifuge performs either carbol fuchsin or fluorescence procedures by exchanging reagents and selecting the appropriate program on the keyboard. Simply select from 6 different stain settings and start the staining cycle. That's all you have to do because the stainer takes over from there, precisely controlling all phases of the stain cycle with consistent reproducibility. The Acid-Fast Bacteria Slide Stainer/Cytocentrifuge is exceptionally sparing in reagent consumption, giving you versatile full or partial load programming options that significantly reduce reagent volumes and cost required for staining different sized loads. An optional 30-slide carousel (not included) brings high volume economy within reach of every laboratory. The Acid-Fast Bacteria Slide Stainer is also a fully capable cytocentrifuge with the purchase of the optional Cytopro rotor. One of the greatest functions of the Wescor Aerospray stainers is their ability to be utilized as a cytocentrifugation instrument. For the cost of the optional Cytopro rotor, the Wescor Aerospray stainers becomes a full featured cytocentrifuge with an 8 slide capacity and keyboard programmability at a fraction of the cost of purchasing a stand-alone cytocentrifuge. Rapid Performance: With a cycle time as short as 4.5 minutes, the Acid-Fast Bacteria Slide Stainer/Cytocentrifuge can process more than 150 slides per hour (up to 360 slides with the optional 30-slide carousel). No more waiting for slides to dry-they're ready to view when the staining cycle ends. No Cross Contamination: In all Aerospray stainers, fresh reagent is applied as an atomized spray on slides mounted in a rotating carousel. Specimens contact only fresh, precisely metered stain from separate spray nozzles. No cross contamination is possible. Carbol Fuchsin Or Fluorescence Staining On Demand: The Acid-Fast Bacteria Slide Stainer/Cytocentrifuge can be configured for Kinyoun, Ziehl-Neelsen, auramine or auramine/rhodamine staining methods.

Includes Cytopro 8 place (8 slides) rotor. The Cytopro Rotor allows you to turn your Aerospray Stainer into a full-featured cytocentrifuge system. The Cytopro is truly simple to load and unload chambers and it is autoclavable for complete sterilization. One 12 place carousel is included in price (30 place carousel may be available for small extra charge). Slides and reagent bottles are NOT included, since there are many sizes (for different methods) available. Can be ordered new at additional cost.
