     Does anyone have any experience with embedding and sectioning
     large-cross-section tissues? We have some porcine vertebral samples
     that measure about  2" x 1 1/2". I can get larger cassettes for
     processing them and make some larger embedding molds, but how do you
     suggest that we clamp them in the microtome? This is the first time
     that we've had to do something this large, and I'd appreciate hearing
     from others about it. Thanks again!
