RE: [Histonet] whole brain in paraffin

From:"Alan Bright"

Dear Nancy,

Please feel free to contact me as I have experience with this microtome.
One thing to note is that with sectioning large samples the design
caused advancing on the return stroke which damaged the surface for the
following sections. We had to redesign this fault on the microtomes we
fitted into our cryostats.

Best Regards

Subject: [Histonet] whole brain in paraffin

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 questions. Thank you in advance, Nancy Lemke Research
