   Dear Collea= gues:
    Yesterday  I  e-mailed Kurabo Industries Ltd. asking for addit= ional
   information about the AS-200 instrument and today I received their an   swer.
    Mr. Hiroomi Ipposhi from the Bio-Medical Department sent me = a "pdf"
   that pritty much says the same thing as was posted.
    The  in= strument can prepare 200 sections (1 per slide) from 1 slide
   in  2  hours  or = 10 slides with 1 section each from 20 blocks in the
   same  2  hours  for  an  ave= rage of 10 blocks/hour. The sections are
   transferred on a film.
    Th=  e  national sectioning productivity average ranges from 17 to 70
   blocks/hour=  with an average of 31 blocks/hour, which means that this
   instrument's  prod= uctivity is 58% of the lower end productivity, 14%
   of the upper end, and ju= st 32% of the overall average.
    Starts sectioning at a pre-determin= ed depth so its main application
   would  be  on  large  specimens several mm thi= ck to produce probably
   control slides.
    I  don't  think  could  be in a= ny way be used for the tiny biopsies
   received daily in the histology lab. Kurabo Bio-Medical can be reached
   at: =  Phone:+81-6-6266-501l Osaka, Japan.
    It  is a textiles manufac= turing company founded more than 100 years
   ago  during  the  Meiji  Revolution  = that started diversifiying into
   biomedical instruments only a few years ago= .
    I thought you may be interested in knowing!
