RE: Microtomes

From:"Georger, Mary"

I have a 355S and love it! I have given it heavy use in the past 2 years and
it has never given me any aggravation ( wish I could say the same for my
Post-Docs ). I use low profile knives, in fact have switched to the new
knives from Richard-Allan recently, and they are also great. 	 cut mainly
very small vessels, often multiple serial sections for up to 20 levels in a
block, so losing sections is not an option. I love the automated option, the
learning curve was very small, even for an old timer like myself :)
Best of luck!
