RE: molds for plastic embedding

From:"Harvey, Jennifer" <Jennifer_Harvey@URMC.Rochester.edu>

Dina,

I do some GMA work and use aluminum block holders From Energy Beam Sciences
Cat # H1512. They work well with the Polyethylene Molding Cup Trays from
Polysciences. Cat #16643A (6x12x5mm) and 17177C (13x19x5). I would buy the
Aluminum block holders from Poly. Sciences but, I don't think they sell
them. 

	Good Luck.
