Fellow Histonetters:

I was pleasantly surprised to see this topic come up today.  I am not
using a dremel tool in the lab, but our wildlife health field crew is for
doing necropsies on white-tailed deer.  They didn't want to spend the
money for a stryker saw.  These folks will probably want to use the
same instrument for cutting up seals, dolphins, whales, and sea turtles
this summer.  Are there any negative implications for them personally, or
specimen quality?  (I have managed to convince them to take chunks that
aren't bigger than a megacassette, but they don't want to admit that you
CAN collect a tissue that fits in a regular cassette IN THE FIELD.)
