Dako Autostainer Plus - pumps all waste into "Hazardous" waste carboy
This is about an earlier model - the Dako Autostainer Plus, but this is the only forum currently available. A customer has a unit which pumps all of the waste into the “Hazardous” carboy, and none into the “Non-hazardous carboy.” Customer does not have any other complaint - seems to be working otherwise. I have verified that if I pour water into the waste reservoir (below the instrument sink) and connect 12VDC to the “Non-toxic” pump, it will properly pump out into the “Non-hazardous” carboy. I did note that there are four probes into the sink, which I assume to be for level sensing. Two of these are short, probably for overfill indication. Two are longer, but one appears to have lost some length due to corrosion. Does anyone have experience on this, or tech data they can share?Reply

Head alignment
I am looking at one of these units, this is I believe the original Dako Autostainer, when you punch the prime pump (buffer or water) the whole system homes then the head moves to the left rear slide position, then lowers down but the white tube strikes the side of the black frame that holds the slides. It appears to be an alignment issue but I cannot find anything on this machine.Reply
