Artisan Link Pro Special Staining System
This unit consists of a slide processor, a computer system with DakoLink workflow compatibility and a printer. Up to three Artisan Link Pro Special Staining Systems can be connected to one touch screen computer. It operates either in single or in a networked configuration system using a LAN system (DakoLink software) or a Laboratory Information System (LIS); providing 24/7 access to the stainer processing status. Artisan Link Pro has a touch screen computer, which minimizes system footprint and simplifies operation.
It delivers excellent quality special stains using Artisan Reagents, which are packaged in patented cartridges that provide precision dispensing of reagents for optimal staining quality.
Through use of the Artisan Clearing Solution, the entire staining process, including slide drying (baking) and deparaffinization, can be automated. This allows for loading of slides directly from the microtome onto the staining system.

Autostainer Link 48
Dako CoverStainer automates every step of the H&E process from baking, dewaxing and staining through to the dehydrated, coverslipped and dried slide that is ready for examination by the pathologist. Dako Reagent Management System (DakoRMS), which is an integral part of Dako CoverStainer, automates the reagent handling process, and secures consistent high staining quality as well as better safety for laboratory personnel when handling reagents.
Dako CoverStainer is part of the Dako H&E solution which also consists of ready-to-use reagents, an optimized, validated H&E protocol, consumables as well as DakoLink software. This combination gives laboratories consistently high staining quality while at the same time reducing hands-on and turnaround time.
