I'm sorry for the double post - I hit the "send" button too soon.
I have a researcher who is working with placenta. The problem: she wants to show all the layers, is cutting the tissue 5 mm thick and cramming it into a cassette, and is not satisfied with the results. I have explained to her that it will be necessary to cut the tissue thinner before placing it into the cassette to achieve adequate processing, but she states this is too difficult.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to an "easy" way to gross placenta into thinner sections?
Any assistance you may provide is greatly appreciated.
