Our research lab is seriously thinking about using these super mega  
tissue cassettes that
measure 72mmx52mmx17mm in size!!!  However, before we do buy & use  
them - I'd like to get
further information such as obtaining a working tissue processing  
protocol for large brain blocks!!!

1. Is there anyone out there that is successfully using these  
cassettes? Please contact me to
provide further information.

2. I found that Surgipath is 1 of 2 vendors that carry these big  
giants & they also carry the metal
embedding molds that go w/cassettes. However I need to know if there  
is a vendor that provides
the tissue chuck adapter that firmly holds these cassettes & if it's  
something we can fit into our
Reigert Jung rotary microtome. Vendors please contact me!!!

Any information anyone can provide will be greatly appreciated.
