When I  was  taught  cutting  with the
microtome (many years ago)  we  stood
at  a  counter -

I was told  by  my teacher  - she  had 
always done it that  way - and  thought
that  possibly her teacher  learned histology  in  England....

So I have continued  to  do this  - no
carpal  tunnel  -good  posture- weight
contol  -

But  I've been curious  - is it done this
way  in UK? - does anyone else cut
standing up-

best regards to all  "histonetters"
