  • Slide Rack: is a slide carrier holding 12 microscope slides in a horizontal position. The instrument holds a maximum of 4 racks. These racks are removable and interchangeable for slide loading and unloading.
  • Glass Slide: is a standard microscope slide to which specimen(s) is mounted for processing on the instrument. Slide dimensions are 25mm x 75mm x 1mm.
  • Reagent Racks 1 and 2: hold the reagent vials. There are 2 reagent racks: reagent rack 1(white) sits in the front right side of the sink; reagent rack 2 (blue) sits behind reagent rack 1. The racks are identical in shape and size. Each rack holds up to 32 reagent vials and is marked with letters A-D and numbers 1-8 to designate each reagent vial position. The computer always assigns reagents to the front white rack first. If additional reagents are required for a procedure or for running the cleaning protocol the computer will assign reagents to the blue rack.
  • Reagent Probe Wash Station: is a white, plastic assembly located in the rear right corner of the instrument and is used as a cleaning station for the teflon-coated reagent probe. The probe is washed in the wash station at the beginning of every run, prior to checking
  • reagent volumes, and application of each reagent.
  • Sink: is the Teflon-coated tray that sits underneath the slide racks and channels the buffer/DI water washes and reagents into the waste reservoir.
  • Y axis mechanism: is the robotic arm extending from the back of the instrument towards the front carrying with it the Z head assembly. The Y arm moves from right to left across the instrument. When the Autostainer is not in operation the Y arm rests on the left side of the machine. When the instrument is in operation and slides are incubating, the arm is located on the right side.
  • X axis mechanism: enables the Y arm to move from left to right across the instrument. The X axis is stationary across the back of the instrument.
  • Z head Assembly: is the dome-shaped assembly that sits over the Y arm. The Z head consists of three components: the probe tip, the wash head and the blow head. These components move up and down along the Z axis while the instrument is in operation. The
  • Z head moves back and forth along the Y axis mechanism, allowing access to all slides and reagents.
