Hi Marg,
We are in the process of replacing our 5 much loved Leitz 1512, for 
the same reason. We were able to purchase 1 automated microtome last 
year and are very pleased with the quality of sections and ease of 
use. It is a Leica 2155. We were unable to purchase another automated 
microtome this year due to the need to replace our tired and worn out 
tissue processor. Leica will soon have a new automated microtome on 
the market that we are anxious to try. It is a new concept in 
microtomes and I will let histonet know as soon as we try it out. 
There are many automated microtomes on the market, so get demos and 
try them out!!
Good luck and have fun!

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 you
mind sharing your recommendations/opinions/experiences with me?

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

Thanks in advance for your help.
