RE: Re trimming round edge of cassette

From:"Bruijntjes, J.P."

Hi all

I was surprised to see that a lot of you answered this question with
different kind of tools to remove the excess wax. But I was wondering:
is it really necessary to remove that wax. At least, in our institute we
don't remove it. We just cut the blocks with no problem at all. I don't
see the advantage, it just takes more time to cut those blocks.

Hi all,
Iam looking to see what techniques people use to remove the excess wax
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
type injury.
Thanks to all in advance
