Hi Histonetters

Joan Yonchek asked about obtaining 10-20 micron sections of formalin fixed
sections of skin on a Vibratome.  It takes skill and patience to
consistently get sections thinner than 30 microns.  I would recommend the
slowest possible speed and the highest possible amplitude.  A sapphire
blade would certainly help.

Best regards,
