We have used them for years to hold bone (rat knees, femurs, larger bones, etc)
for suspension in decalcifiers, and often use them during processing when the
specimen is too large for a cassette.  One could decalcify, do xray
determination, rinse and process all in one bag, saved a lot of time.  

Do not use them for soft tissues, and they tend to fill the cassette with a lot
of nylon, flattening some of our precious samples we do not want flat.  For
that, we have gone to newer designs on cassettes, multicompartments, and the
newer nylon mesh designs look great, to avoid an extra step in handling the

They have their use, and sturdy, ask for a sample from your Shandon rep, to
give them a try.
