[Histonet] fixed jaw clamps/ large size specimens

From:"Kinsley, David"

I'm looking to section some larger size specimens, particularly rat hind paw
samples and am looking for cassettes that are slightly larger than the mega
cassette but not as large as the super mega cassette.  (Approximately 2"
long by 1.5" wide by 1/2 to 3/4" deep)  I have called some vendors and have
had little luck.  

The only suggestion was to purchase a fixed jaw clamp for my microtome
(Microm HM355) and try to use that with the super mega cassette.

Does anyone have any experience with these types of specimens?  Any
suggestions on cassettes or microtome adapters?
