RE: [Histonet] Large Sections: Prostate

From:Kemlo Rogerson

Loads of UK labs are using large processing cassettes and then slides to
deal with prostates and neck dissection specimens; I don't think you need a
large microtome just the large cassette holders; any of the Histology Supply
Companies should have what you need.

Subject: [Histonet] Large Sections: Prostate

One of our pathologists is interested in getting a whole section of a
bisected prostate with subsequent staining. This would require very large
glass slides and a special microtome (I would imagine). This is for research

Does anyone have this capability, or do you have information on where it can
be done?

Thanks in advance.
