We use the Microm HM 355 S and we love them.  I bought 6 of them.  The

Microm better than the Lieca because you can use it manual (when you need
to) and automatic.  If you have a tiny piece of tissue and you feel more
comfortable using the manual mode you can.  Also it is not as bulky as the

Are there Histotechs who actually use automated microtomes daily?   Not
the ones you have purchased, then seldom use or use in a manual mode.  I
need real-time guidance from techs who use them daily and  what
likes/dislikes you have with the particular brand bought.
Any response is appreciated.  Thanks.
