RE: Microtome Recommendation

From:"Dawson, Glen" <>

Speaking of Microm.....has anyone heard about Lukas Microscopes getting out
of the Microm servicing busines in the WI, IL area?  I don't know the
details but I do know that I have been happy with Lukas' service in the
past.  Good servicing from a reputable vender is key and I am
hoping that we don't lose one of the good ones because of some of the
overzealous bean-counting that is running rampant through histo these days.
This does not please me.

Dianna, please check out the Microm automated microtome along with the
Leica.  It also does the plastics you are wanting to do.  Microm is now
distributed by Richard Allan as they purchased the company in the past
year.  Sharon Osborn
