Thermo Scientific* Autostainer 480S-2D provides the standard platform for most laboratories in a compact footprint.
Thermo Scientific Autostainers are renowned for their consistency and reliability and are the most widely used IHC platforms worldwide. Autostainer modularity provides flexible options to meet the workflow needs of any laboratory. Fast flow, software logic enables flexible programming, operator ease of use and control of IHC costs.

The Thermo Scientific* PTModule is designed to simultaneously perform Dewaxing and Epitope Recovery on slides prior to immunostaining.
The Thermo Scientific PTModule is the benchmark for simplification, standardization and consistency of antigen retrieval procedures in IHC. The PT Module fully automates simultaneous de-waxing and antigen retrieval of IHC and includes PT Monitor software for printing/maintenance of regulatory compliant procedural reports.
