Hi Marjorie:
I recently was at a meeting and saw the new Leica automatic microtome. It is a
whole new look at the way a block is cut. The block rotates toward the blade. I
plan on getting it in our lab to try. Unfortunately, I can't let you know how it
works in a clinical setting yet. I would suggest getting a demo.
Let us know what you think...
