The Thermo Scientific Hypercenter XP, also called the Shandon Hypercenter XP is a computer-controlled, fluid transfer tissue processor with automated fixation, dehydration, cleaning and paraffin infiltration features for tissue specimens.
The Shandon Hypercenter XP features a Reagent Storage Module that does not allow reagent fumes to vent into laboratory atmosphere while it is in operation. This Shandon tissue processor also carries a flexible air bag which maximizes the system’s air capacity, and an emergency carbon filter is utilized as an additional safety feature and only works if there is excess pressure.
The Hypercenter XP tissue processor is design with an organized capacity of 180 cassettes, and can be configured as either a floor model or bench-top model. The Hypercenter XP enhances workflow with its One Command Module that can control up to five reaction and storage modules for processing capacity of up to 900 cassettes per load. Additionally, the multi-lingual processor software XP allows the operator to save as much as 9 customized programs and accommodate year 2000 changes.
The Hypercenter XP Portable Wax Station also offers the option of a third wax bath which can be used as a final cleaning stage in the wax impregnation of specimens. The Wax Station can be conveniently located to the side of the Hypercenter XP Reaction Module, so that wax-impregnated specimens can be transported safely to an embedding station without messy wax spillages.
