Zeiss-Microm DS-50 Slide Stainer

The Zeiss-Microm DS-50 slide stainer is fully programmable and meets the requirements of histology, hematology, cytology, microbiology and pathology laboratories. The Zeiss-Microm DS-50 slide stainer offers the efficiency, safety features and ease of operation customers have come to expect from Carl Zeiss. Equally important, the system's flexibility allows you to define your own protocols and remain consistent with your laboratory's individual procedures and requirements.


The slide carrier is designed for easy loading and removal of slides by grasping the carrier with one hand and inserting slides straight into the guide slots with other hand.
The stainer is fitted with a safety interlock that prevents the unit from operating when the hood is lifted.
The stainer enables you to easily and quickly print out a stored program.
The transparent hood reduces emmission of solvents into the lab area.
An exhaust fan is built in and can be externally exhausted using optional PN 900934.
