Re: Trimming around edge of cassettes
I was going say that Shandon had a new toy for this, although at cú500 I
think its a pricey toy (tightfisted Scot). But others have beat me to it.
As an aside there may be a risk of needle stick type injury (cut) from
microtomy, does anyone know of a method for cutting sections that will
eliminate this risk. Please don't take offence, I guesss this came from a
H&S type person. It's just that knives and other sharp objects are used in
Histo and have been safely for many tasks over many years. I have known
people to get cut when sectioning, coverslipping and other tasks but in
over 30 years (oh my god) never have I seen or heard of someone getting cut
when trimming cassettes.
