A recent inquiry asked for devices to hold tissues for precise, although 1 
mm thick slices of tissue.

Mopec CutMATE forceps are designed to hold tissues for precise 
slicing.  The forceps resembles a paddle with slots in the tissue griping 
area. One inserts a sharp blade into slots, above firmly held tissue, and 
then cut serial slices. There are forceps for 2, 3, and 4 mm thick slices, 
or you can purchase a set.  The handles are ergonomically designed.  Go to
