Re: Whole Mount Sections

From:Vicki Gauch <>

Dr. Cohen,
 We are currently doing whole mount sectioning on prostates but not breasts. We cut them on a Leica 2135 and the sections are great.  We store the slides in regular metal slide drawers that we have removed the center divider from.  The blocks we currently store in cardboard boxes but are looking for a better storage system for those.  If there is anything else you need to know please feel free to contact me and I will be happy to share what info I have.

Have a great day,

Is anyone doing whole mount sectioning for breasts or prostates, in the
clinical community hospital setting?
And if so, what equipment are you using and how are you storing your large

We have a large breast pathology service and have given some thought to
whole mount sectioning but would like to know others' experience first.
