Ditto: we have 2 microms and they have been nothing but trouble. They
have a great design but are always down.

RUN from Microm embedding centers.  Microm makes great microtomes but
embedding centers.   We had an AP280, purchased in '99 that was a
lemon.  Paraffin chamber and cold plate had continuous problems.  It was
sent back numerous times and even replaced but still would not work
properly.  Contact me for details.   By 2002,  we trashed it  and
it with a new Tissue Tek Tec 5  Embedding Station.  We now have 2 in the
lab.  Tissue Tec is the best workhorse out there.  I have used it for
years prior  and am glad to have it in this laboratory.

Hello all!  I need your masses of expertise yet again!!  I thank you in
My lab is in the process of acquiring a new embedding center.  What are
your experiences with the various embedding centers out there?  Why do
you like/dislike about the unit?  How is your experience with the
customer support?  I am considering the Microm ec350, so any info on
this particular unit is greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much again!
