Hi histonetters,
I have gotten alot of reponses on were to get the forceps for hiolding
tissue to cut
thin sections so here it is for everyone.
They are available from mopec. 1-800-362-8491. Mopec has a website at but
these forceps are pretty new so I don't know if they are on the site yet.
They do
have a new products flyer which tells about the forceps. I sure they will
send one
out if needed.
