Re: Automated Microtomes

From:Roger Moretz <>

We have an automated Leica (an older model) and
recently demo'd the new version.  The individual using
the older Leica really uses it heavily and it very
fond of it.  Another lab here recently purchased one
as well.  The new model (rotating sample) is
intriguing, but we did not have the time to give it a
fair trial.  We have seen the Microm (have 4 of the
manuals now) and were impressed.  Can't speak to any
of the others.
