Subject: Re trimming round edge of cassette

Hi all,
Iam looking to see what techniques people use to remove the excess wax from
around the cassette after embedding and before trimming.We use at present a
blunted scalpel  but we have been told there may be a risk from needle stick
type injury. Thanks to all in advance Ian Clarke
