Artisan Link Pro Special Staining System

Artisan Link Pro Special Staining System

This unit consists of a slide processor, a computer system with DakoLink workflow compatibility and a printer. Up to three Artisan Link Pro Special Staining Systems can be connected to one touch screen computer. It operates either in single or in a networked configuration system using a LAN system (DakoLink software) or a Laboratory Information System (LIS); providing 24/7 access to the stainer processing status. Artisan Link Pro has a touch screen computer, which minimizes system footprint and simplifies operation.

It delivers excellent quality special stains using Artisan Reagents, which are packaged in patented cartridges that provide precision dispensing of reagents for optimal staining quality.

Through use of the Artisan Clearing Solution, the entire staining process, including slide drying (baking) and deparaffinization, can be automated. This allows for loading of slides directly from the microtome onto the staining system.
