Thermo Scientific STP 420ES Tissue Processor

Tuesday, 09 August, 2011 | Supplied by: Thermo Fisher Scientific


The STP 420ES Tissue Processor is suitable for high-throughput tissue processing. It enables faster turnaround times for same-day diagnosis and leaner workflows through operational flexibility.

Using a dual-chamber design, which features rotational agitation that increases flow of traditional reagents by sevenfold to reduce processing times, the STP 420ES can process up to 420 cassettes per run. Holding 360 and 60 cassettes in the first and second chambers respectively, the second chamber allows independent processing of stat samples, as well as special or difficult tissues, without disrupting routine workflow or requiring the use of a second instrument.

By performing multiple runs per day and two protocols simultaneously, a laboratory using the STP 420ES can benefit from increased processing capacity and improved agitation with no additional capital expenditure. Furthermore, when used in combination with the Thermo Scientific Fast Flex range of reagents, the tissue processor can cost-effectively halve traditional processing times to only 4.4 h for 5 mm specimens and under one hour for biopsies. This is all done while continuing to provide the highest-quality results.

The processor offers high performance with the flexibility to increase or decrease processing speeds as desired, leaving the laboratory and its staff in complete control of its workflow. Additionally, the control and monitoring of both chambers is provided simply via a single touch-screen user interface.
