Abstract

In a system and method for washing and target retrieval of tissue samples mounted on microscope slides for use in immonistochemical procedures and cytology, each of a plurality of dip tanks comprises a housing and a holding structure for holding a single microscope slide in a fixed position. A fluid inlet may be provided at an upper end of the housing structure, and an outlet may be provided at the lower end of the housing structure. An agitator is provided for agitating fluid in the tank compartment. The system may comprises a single reservoir of liquid, a dosing pump for pumping a controlled dosage of liquid from the reservoir to the fluid inlet of each of the dip tanks, a preheater for heating liquid pumped from the reservoir to the dip tanks, a fluid control system configured to allow liquid pumped from the reservoir to the dip tanks to selectively bypass the preheater, a housing heater for heating at least a portion of the housing of each of the dip tanks, an overflow drain, associated with each one of the dip tanks, a drive for driving the agitator within the dip tank, and a waste reservoir for liquid.
