Automated slide stainer SS-30

for routine and special staining protocols

Flexible and versatile design for optimized staining results in histology and cytology labs.



Multistaining capability


More staining flexibility allowing simultaneous and automatic staining of various 30-slide racks with identical or different staining protocols. Continuous loading to maximize efficiency and productivity in labs.

Up to 5 slide racks can be run simultaneously depending on protocols, load frequency, and instrument configuration, enabling up to 150 slides to be stained simultaneously. The instrument calculates the most efficient route for each rack/protocol.

Flexible staining

The agitation system can be individually programmed for each station: it is available in 4 different preset dip modes with 3 configurable parameters: number, speed, and amplitude of the dips. A special programming for the washing stations is also available.

Several adaptors are available for the most popular coverslipper racks in the market.

Real-time display

SS-30 displays in real time the status of each staining protocol. It can store up to 20 programmed protocols in memory with 50 steps each maximum as well as up to 52 reagents (32 pre-programmed).

The drain function minimizes the reagent carryover and helps reducing reagent consumption to optimize costs.

Compact footprint

Ideal for labs with shallow benches to optimize valuable space. Smartly designed to occupy less space without compromising slide staining productivity.

Dedicated software

SS-30 stainer is supplied with a PC dedicated software that offers the option to define protocols and modify the list of saved reagents from the convenience of a PC.

It has also reporting capabilities through a USB plug to acquire data, displaying real status of the running protocols and managing reports and errors.

User and specimen safety

Lab-friendly integrated filtration system equipped with a charcoal filter and individual lids for the reagent stations to avoid evaporation of reagents.

Optional adaptor for the laboratory general extraction system.

  • Back-up battery with 2h autonomy to finish the staining protocols in case of power failure. External 12V power supply.
  • The transparent hood is equipped with two hinged doors (loading/unloading stations) to reduce the exposure to reagents.
  • Water overflowing in the stainer is secured thanks to an innovative two water level sensors system.
  • The Reagent Management System (RMS) keeps track of reagent usage and ensures an optimal staining quality
    (available only in version SS-30H).
