RE: vibratome mounting

From:"Charles W. Scouten, Ph.D."

Dear Ashley,

We have seen a wide range of mounting methods for tissue in a Vibratome.
Agarose which sets at room temperature mixed to a consistency to match
its density to that of the tissue works well when glued to a mounting
block with the Locktite 404 pecimen adhesive sold by the Vibratome
Company.  I think this will work.

What tissue?  Do you need firmer hold? What problem are you having?

Hi all,

Does anyone out there use anything interesting for mounting tissue to
cut on
the vibratome?  Sometimes superglue and/or agar just don't cut it.  All
