I am in the process of demos for an automated microtome.My question goes out to
those who are using the Olympus automated microtome. Does this microtome have
the advance and retraction of the block automated? If it is automated, is it
with the push of a button or the footpedal? What are the pros and cons of this
particular microtome.
Thanx in advance,
