RE: [Histonet] Automated microtome

From:"Christine Tambasco"

   I  use the Leica 2255 and we also have a tech that uses the 2155. Most
   all  tissues  cut excellently. Bone and some other hard tissues have a
   tendency to chatter as with any microtome.Is everything tight and does
   she  soak  her tissues long enough? Sometimes tissues that dont sit on
   icewater  for  10-20 minutes chatter because the tissue is dry. That's
   my input.

   Sincerely and Good Luck,
