TissueTek VIP 6 AI

This VIP® 6 AI is designed for automatic processing purposes in an enclosed single processing chamber. The VIP® 6 AI runs cycles of fixation, dehydration/defatting, clearing, and paraffin infiltration of tissue specimens which are necessary for sample preparation in histological studies and examinations, conducted for the pathology, anatomy and clinical pathology fields.

The instrument is provided with a means of pumping a designated processing solution into a retort containing specimen baskets, processing them in a given time under predetermined conditions, and then pumping the solution out after a lapse of the time. These operations are automatically performed in a single retort in accordance with predetermined processing steps.

After completion of the processing steps, specimen baskets are removed from the retort. Paraffin is pumped out to the last paraffin container from the retort which is afterward cleaned with retort cleaning solutions.

Tissue safety meets Reliability setting new standards in processingThe TissueTek VIP 6 AI Vacuum Infiltration Processor is a selfcontained floorstanding automatic tissue processor used to process tissue specimens. It holds up to 300 tissue cassettes and comes with added features of Advance Solution Manager & iSupport.
Easy access and graphical display of reagents, bulk reservoirs and retort. Linked to state-of-the-art and user friendly software results in increased user convenience
One fill/drain port for reagent reservoirs and 2 external fill ports for the bulk reservoirs enable users to exchange or fill reagents faster, increasing the speed by which reagents are exchanged or filled, hence workflow and limit the exposure to fumes of hazardous chemicals
Absence of condensation and fumes in the retort increases reliability of tissue processing and limit the exposure to fumes of hazardous chemicals
Quick and safe open/close of retort lid increases user convenience
Quality of processing is improved, higher efficiency obtained due to reagent management system, eliminate the risk of tissue dry-out
Four sensors prevent overflow in the retort and the load of too many cassettes. Besides, they ensure a safeguard level (2.7L for 150 cassettes and 3.5L for 300 cassettes) for all fluids. These features increase reliability by eliminating the risk of tissue dry out.
Easy monitoring of reagent levels is possible, increasing reliability of the process

LCD color touch screen and intuitive windows based software
External drain & fill Internal heated retort lid and condenser
Ergonomic designed retort lid
Automated reagent management system
Four different level sensors
Illuminated reagent check

Processing steps: 14 (10 solution steps, 4 paraffin steps)

Cleaning steps: 3 (xylene, alcohol, drying)

Process time: 0 to 99 hr, 59 min in 1-minute increments for each station

Processing delay: Number of days and actual end-time, auto-calculation

Temperature: Reagent, 35º C to 60º C; paraffin, 45º C to 70º C

Pressure/vacuum agitation: Selectable, p/v cycle: pressure, ambient and vacuum are cycled in the retort during processing; V cycle: ambient and vacuum are alternated in the retort during processing

Pump in/out mixing: Two different mixing functions: 1) agitation by completely pumping reagent in and out (either fast in 12 minutes or slow which takes 20 minutes) or 2) agitation by pumping reagent in and out while specimens are completely immersed (either continuous during the complete process or short/instantaneous between the level sensors).

Paraffin cleansing: Automatic paraffin oven degassing

Clean cycle: 3 user-defined options with optional drying cycle

Valve system: One rotary valve and one gate valve for reagent and paraffin transfer, and external drain and fill, heat on or off

Fluid detection: Detection of vacuum/pressure changes plus four ultrasonic sensors, on or off

Fail-safe systems: Solution manager substitutes compatible solution to complete the run and automatic reversal of pumping action to insure specimens remain submerged

Solution Exchange mode: Automatically (up to 3 reagent rotations including paraffin) during processing or on demand

External drain and fill: Select from drain, fill, drain & fill with optional rinses with water, alcohol, water/alcohol, alcohol/water, or an external solution
