Technological Advancement in Automatic Staining of Laboratory Specimen Holders

The advancement of medical science and technology has brought with it incredible developments in the field of laboratory equipment. Among these is automatic slide staining, a fundamental instrument used in laboratories around the world for the correct visualization of microscopic specimens.

As leaders in the field of laboratory equipment, Kalstein presents three high-performance models: YR435, YR435-1 and YR436-1, each with unique features and technical specifications.

The Impressive Kalstein Model YR435

The first thing you should know is the capacity and power of the Kalstein model YR435. This machine has 14 processing cups, of which 12 are reagent cups, the 8th station is a wash station and the first station is a drying station. It is really a complete equipment designed for the high demand of staining in clinical and research laboratories.

The processing time for each station can be adjusted within 0 min 0 sec – 59 min 59 sec depending on the requirement of each procedure. In addition, the capacity of these vessels is 1500ml, which can process up to 72 slides at the same time. Its powerful motor operates with a working voltage AC 220 V ± 10 % 50 Hz (standard model); AC 110 V ± 10 % 60 Hz, and requires 500W of power, allowing this equipment to work efficiently and continuously.

Unique Features of the Kalstein Model YR435-1

The YR435-1 has an amazing staining capacity, processing 400 slides in one hour. This allows for increased work efficiency and reduced processing time in high-demand labs. Its staining rack can hold up to 30 slides, and it has up to 10 different shelves for different programs, ensuring versatility of use.

This model has a total station capacity of 36, divided into 26 for reagents, 5 for washing and 2 for unloading. The volume of reagents it can process is 500ml. It works with a voltage of 220VAC ± 10%, 50 / 60HZ and uses 200W of power. The equipment has overall dimensions of 1050 mm × 615 mm × 590 mm, designed to fit optimally in any laboratory space.

Highlighting the capabilities of the Kalstein Model YR436-1

Last but not least, the Kalstein Model YR436-1 features 15 tanks for automatic slide staining. The first station is for drying, the second for washing and the other 13 are reserved for reagents. This machinery has a capacity of approximately 350 ml per tank.

The treatment time in each tank is adjustable between 0 and 59 minutes and between 0 and 59 seconds, with a temperature control that maintains an accuracy of ± 1%. In addition, its drip time can also be set from 0 to 60 seconds, and its agitation frequency is 0 to 6 times per minute. This model operates at a working voltage of AC220V ± 10% 50Hz (standard model); AC 110 V ± 10 % 60 Hz, and its power consumption is 400W.

A Conclusion of Technological Scope

These Kalstein models represent a breakthrough in automated slide staining technology. Their innovative features and their ability to work with high efficiency and incredible precision make them an indispensable choice in any laboratory seeking to optimize its performance, improving the quality and accuracy of results.

Investing in these staining machines modernizes the laboratory and ensures constant progress in the important work of analysis and research.
