A tissue processor is a piece of laboratory equipment used for the routine processing of animal, plant and human body tissue, usually through the application of reagents under controlled temperatures. The tissue processor adds automation aspects to the pathology or histology laboratory. They tend to produce specimens that are morphologically and qualitatively identical to manual tissue processing, though concerns about cost and still needing to manually dissect or prepare specimens prior still exist.[1]
