Automatic tissue processor at OHSU
- A device for processing histological tissue having a tissue carrier basket suspended from a turntable overlying a plurality of beakers suspended from a carrier plate. The turntable is raised, indexed, and lowered by a suitable driving mechanism to move the tissue basket sequentially through the beakers. Timers can each be programmed to control the movement of the turntable to provide various different cycles for processing the tissue. Some of the beakers are received in individual thermal baths to heat and control the temperature of the substances received in the beakers for treating the tissue.
