RE: Museum of Histotechnology?

From:"Morken, Tim"

I found a website once that had a pathology equipment museum on line. I'm
not sure I still have that link but I'll look for it. There was also a
museum of sorts set up at the NSH meeting a few years ago.

Subject: Museum of Histotechnology?

Is there such a thing as a museum of Histotechnology somewhere in the World
or here in the States? The basic technique of sectioning and staining has
not changed much, but equipment and methods have. It would be nice to know
some of these old pieces of equipment and other items related to
histotechnology were being saved for posterity. Items that come to mind are
Histokinette tissue processors, Freezing microtomes with carbon dioxide
cylinders, and the early immunohistochemistry kits from Dako and Immulok
that came out in the early 70's.
I know the AFIP museum has some items but I don't know of any where else.
