Re: ergonomic scissors and bone cutters for rat tissue

From:Stephen.Eyres@sanofi-synthelabo.com


Gayle,
We sample rat sternum, and cut the femur in order to prepare a bone marrow
smear. We also remove the part of the skull in order to remove the brain.
During the dissection we also have to remove skin.
Cheers
Steve

What do you mean by cutting rat bone and skull?  Femurs?  Skull to remove
brain?
