[Histonet] section thickness

From:"Cheryl Crowder"

Joyce - Our lab cuts tissues from a variety of sources.  We cut most tissues 
at 3 microns.  Since we take a lot of pictures and cells were considered 4 
microns thick, 3 microns shows only on thickness and good for pictures.  The 
exceptions are kidneys, cut a 2 microns and CNS tissues cut at 5-6 microns.
