Leica has a new microtome that looks wonderful- the DSC1. It's a disc 
microtome  - fresh to the market. It may be hard to get a demo, but 
from the looks of the brochure, I believe it would be worth checking 
out. j

Hi Everyone,

The two techs that cut most of the time have both developed carpal 
tunnel. I
asked the director if we could get automatic microtomes and he is 
going to
go to bat for us.

Of course I don't know anything about automatic tomes. Would some of 
mind sharing your recommendations/opinions/experiences with me?

We currently have 3 Leica 1512, like them very much, and produce top 

Thanks in advance for your help.
