We have gone to  the All in One Cassette, from Histoplex.   A small 
triangular area on one corner of cassette has tiny holes and a tight 
fitting lid in that area for biopsies.  For all other tissues, you use the 
large area with standard size slots.  They come in 11 colors.   They are 
working very well for us - no longer have to keep two kinds of cassettes 
around!!  Very efficient and saves space and the techs grossing in research 
tissues LOVE them!!!  On embedding and microtomy end, we like them too.

Available from Fisher white are Cat # 221464420.

Our samples came from American MasterTech Scientific, ph # 800 860-4073 go 
to www.mastertechs.com   to take a look at these.  They will send samples 
so you can try before investing.  Their prices are competitive.
