Ready to Invest in Productivity and Accelerated, Quality Results?

If so, then get ready for the ASP-2000, which reduces processing time with no reduction in specimen preparation quality!

The ASP’s continuous, directed reagent agitation and rapid reagent exchanges greatly accelerate infiltration of all reagents, even 100% resin, compared to other processing methods (see table below)The result?  Unprecedented processing speed and superb micrograph images.


Congrats to the Oregon Health & Science University for their recent article, "Automated large volume sample preparation for vEM" in Methods in Cell Biology! 

Methods implemented on the ASP-2000 "... are completed in a much shorter period of time while minimizing the exposure of the operator to hazardous and toxic chemicals and improving the reproducibility of the specimens' heavy metal staining, all without compromising the quality of the data acquired" (from article abstract).

We couldn't have said it better ourselves!
