I have dhad the Microm HM 355 S for several years and asolutely love it! We
do many very tedious serial cuts of entire vessels, and the machine makes my
life so much easier. It is reliable, easy to learn, and thus far I have had
Best of luck!

> Hi Everyone:
> I am in the market for a microtome.
> I have tested 3 fully automated machines and 3 manual machines.
> The electric microtomes are the Richard Allan Microm HM 355 S, the
> Shandon Finesse ME, and the Leica RM 2155.
> I did reference checks on all 3 electric machines.
> I eliminated the manual machines (by the same 3 companies) mainly
> because I found their flywheels much harder to turn than my present 30
> year old AO820!
> I am leaning toward 1 of the electric microtomes, but thought I would
> ask people's opinion.
> One of the many issues i am concerned about is durability, workmanship,
> whether a machine is solidly built.
> Thanks for your time,
