Hello, all histoneter, again.

Our lab decided to buy a cryostat system.  We decided to get one because
we have to cut a lot of serial sections (150 sections per one animal) of
mice carotid artery.  We are now using a cryostat in hisology lab, but
we need our own to speed up the project.  We have no idea which
cryosystem to buy.  I remember somebody was recommending Leica system. 
Can anybody give me some advice?   I also remember some said accu-edge
disposable blade is the best, but was it for paraffin system?  Has
anyone tried cryojane system?

Any subjective opinion is welcome!

Thank you very much in advance.
