Re: Microtome Recommendation
We recently had two leica microtomes. They were purchased about 3 years ago.
What they failed to mention, were that these microtomes do not do well with
hard tissue such as uterus and other tissue that can be very firm. I have an
Olympus Cut-4060 that was purchases in the same time frame which I love. We
now have 4 of them and the Leica's are out the door. I recommend that you
shop around even if it means that you may have to pay a little more in 2001.
We paid over $6000.00 for those Leica's, then sold them for $1500.00 and they
were in excellent condition. I have known of Histo-techs who prefer the
Lieca over the Olympus. But not in our lab. Please give both of them a try.
