Re: [Histonet] Large Sections: Prostate

From:Rene J Buesa

  On a separate e-mail I am forwarding a photo file with all the components I made in our lab (cassettes, molds and holging blocks) to section whole prostates.
  At the start we used a regular rotary microtome with enough block clearance, but as the work increased we bought a Leitz sliding microtome.

  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 purposes.

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

Thanks in advance.
