RE: [Histonet] whole brain in paraffin/microtome for sale?

From:"Marshall Terry Dr, Consultant Histopathologist"

Talking of tetranders, has anybody in the UK got a decent sledge microtome to sell, preferably for a song.
(I can do guitar accompaniment if necessary)?

WOW a Tetrander!!!

Thought those things had been consigned to the torture chamber.....

Used that thing 25 years ago with mega brain slices, hardest bit was keeping
the block cool but as long as the processing was Ok (used to take weeks to
process the brain) it was not too bad; needed skill in manipulating the
sections and then floating onto dirty great big coated slides. If you have
any probs then contact me.

Good Morning Histonet,
I would like some information about the preparation and sectioning of 1-2cm
slabs of human brain.  The cutting will be done on an old Reichert Tetrander
(sliding) microtome with a giant steel blade.  If anyone who has experience
with this sort of sectioning would email me I would love to ask some
Thank you in advance,
