Re: Automated Microtomes

From:Louri Caldwell <>

We have four Shandon Finesse Automated Microtomes and absolutely love them.  
They are very easy to use and dependable.  We have had excellent support 
from the company as well.

We also have a Leica automated microtome and haven't had any problems with 
it.  It is a little more difficult to use with more manipulations required 
than the Shandon, but I have one tech that won't think of switching to the 
Shandon because she adores the Leica.

I think it comes down to personal preference between the two and would 
recommend trying both.
