RE: [Histonet] CSI Las Vegas

From:Jennifer MacDonald

A histo sales rep was the person actually cutting on that microtome.  Her 
arms were shown,but it was the TV personality that we saw.  The rep had a 
difficult time convincing the people about doing things the right way.

At least "Bones" has been a little more accurate. They actually cut on a
microtome (the right way) but I did question the fact that they never
mentioned wether the bone they were cutting was decalled or not. Did
anyone see S.O.B.? They did do it right.

I didn't catch the show last night, but years ago,
there was a show called Quincy...very similar to CSI. 
My best  friend Ed Brock was the technical consultant
for that show.  He worked for Technicon at that time
and made sure they were atleast close to being on
track.  Times change.
