Our research laboratory is looking at purchasing a cryostat in the near
future and we need a unit that will cut sections suitable for laser capture
microdisection (LCM). Most of our work revolves around rat mammary gland and
past attempts at cutting this very fatty tissue on an old IEC unit proved
frustrating to say the least.

Our lab has been without a cryostat for a few years, so we don't know what
latest and greatest units are available. We're looking for good unit that
doesn't cost an arm and leg. Does anyone have any recommendations?

Also, is anyone using the Instrumedics CyroJane system for LCM? Does the
transfer tape interfere with RNA recovery? Any information would be greatly
