Re: Re trimming round edge of cassette

From:"Sarah Jones"

We use the Para-Trimmer from Thermo Shandon, it melts the excess paraffin from around the cassette edges.  It is the best new histo invention in a long time.,1075,1000005630653-117-X-1-1,00.html

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
