Subject: [Histonet] block alignment


Does anyone out there have any experience with block alignment products
such as the Microtome Aligner from Newcomer or the Histo Collimator?  We
receive a huge number of outside blocks and I adjust my block holder
accordingly, but others in the group say it's easier to re-embed all
outside blocks (Yikes!) and then have every microtome aligned the same.
I was just wondering if these aligners work and if so perhaps it could
be an alternative for those individuals that normally would rather
re-embed than realign.
