RE: [Histonet] tissue slicer

From:"Alan Bright"

Dear Katy,

Our Cryostat Model OTF5000 will section at the range of thicknesses you
specify, but only one section after another, I have not seen a device
that can section the whole specimen at the desired thickness in one cut,
also I cannot see how it would be possible to section by this method

Please let me have your contact details to enable me to explain how I
can assist you. 

Best Regards

Subject: [Histonet] tissue slicer


We are looking for a device which can be used to cut tissue quickly into
slices of an even thickness. We're not sure yet exactly how thick these
will be but something in the range 30-300 microns is likely. My
supervisor has in mind something in which several blades are attached to
a holder that keeps them the correct distance apart, so that all the
slices are cut at once. Has anyone ever used/ seen this kind of thing,
or anything else which would do the job?
