RE: [Histonet] tissue slicer

From:"Steven E. Slap"

Hi HistoNetters

Another option would be the McIlwain tissue 
chopper (yes, I'm showing my age), still 
available at 
http://www.campden-inst.com/chopper.html.  It is 
limited in tissue thicknesses to thicker slices 
than a Vibratome, but is still much better than 
my lovely Lisatome can do.
