The VP2000 Processor easily processes slides using pre-programmed Vysis protocols for fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) for applications such as paraffin removal and the specimen pretreatment protocols for the Vysis UroVysion Bladder Cancer Kit and Vysis ALK Break Apart FISH Probe Kit.

Now you can perform deparaffinization, pretreatment, histology/cytology staining, special stains (G-banding and other), and routine slide washing with a single system. The easy-to-operate user interface of the VP2000/VIP2000 Processor and Upgrade allows the user to enter and save user-defined protocols for various staining procedures and specimen pretreatment procedures.

This flexibility provides your laboratory with an instrument (VP2000) that can be utilized for multiple functions within a single workday. Now with the addition of the VIP2000 upgrade, FISH laboratories have the flexibility to run smaller batch sizes with multiple basin sizes (150mL, 250mL, 500mL) ensuring efficient reagent usage and reduced waste.  When used in combination with Universal Pretreatment Reagents, the VP2000/VIP2000 Processor and Upgrade can batch multiple tissue types together thereby reducing overall processing time.  As your laboratory adds high-volume FISH testing to your menu of routine services, the VP2000/VIP2000 Processor and Upgrade provides a flexible and cost-effective solution.
