Artisan Link Special Staining System is our first instrument to provide true walk-away automation for complex special stains. A slide barcode reader standardizes and increases the speed of slide processing, reduces errors and improves your laboratory productivity. The software allows Artisan Link to be operated either as a stand-alone or in a networked configuration system using a LAN System (DakoLink) or a Laboratory Information System (LIS) providing 24/7 access to stainer processing status. Optimize your Laboratory Efficiency through Automation All procedural requirements for staining are controlled by the instrument, delivering excellent quality special stains using Artisan reagents, which are packaged in a patented cartridge that provides precision dispensing of reagents for optimal staining quality. Artisan Link utilizes a patented reaction chamber, and with its 48-slide capacity it can handle multiple protocols, requiring heat or room temperature in a single run.
