RE: [Histonet] Cutting rat brains

From:"Alan Bright"

Dear Rosalba,

What would save you much time is to have motor driven cryomicrotome (
Cryostat ) plus a section counter to be set to the required amount of
sections and then stop the automatic trimming. . This would free up your
time, enabling you to carry out other tasks while the frozen blocks are
being trimmed. This is fitted to many cryostats we produce. 

Best Regards

Subject: [Histonet] Cutting rat brains

I want to cut a frozen rat brain at around 1-3 mm intervals to form
I wish to be able to return to each block at a later date to take
sections if necessary.  Can anyone suggest a suitable method or piece of
equipment that would aid this task?  Thanks
