Product Description

Now you can perform deparaffinization, pretreatment, histology/cytology staining, special stains (G-banding and other), and routine slide washing with a single system. The VP 2000 Processor easily processes slides using pre-programmed Vysis protocols for fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) for applications such as paraffin removal and the specimen pretreatment protocols for the Vysis UroVysion Bladder Cancer Kit.

The easy-to-operate user interface of the VP 2000 allows the user to enter and save user-defined protocols for various staining procedures and specimen pretreatment procedures.

This flexibility provides your laboratory with an instrument that can be utilized for multiplefunctions within a single workday. As your laboratory adds high-volume FISH testing to your menu of routine services, the Vysis VP 2000 Processor provides a flexible and cost-effective solution.

Advantages of the VP 2000 Processor are:

    • Convenient walk-away automation to reduce laboratory labor and costs
    • Performs more consistent and standardized FISH assay deparaffinization and pretreatment
    • Validated for use with Vysis FISH pretreatment protocols including solid tumor and cytological specimens, such as amniocytes and bladder tumor cells
    • Full user programmability of events for maximum flexibility
    • Open system is compatible with reagents used in today’s laboratories
    • Bulk reagents available for added economy and ease-of-use
    • Driven by a PC with Windows user interface (included in package)
    • Five-way safety protection
    • Reliability to stay on the job processing slides, year after year
