RE: Nominations for the best disposable microtome blade

From:"Horn, Hazel V"

For the price the ThermoShandon's blade MX-35 Premier is a great blade.
Half the cost of accuedge.  Now, finally Accuedge is getting competition
from other vendors.    There used to be no comparison between blades.   Not
so anymore.
