Subject: [Histonet] Automated microtome

I am working as a supervisor at a facility that had a Leica 2155
automated microtome.  Only having had experience with manual microtomes,
I need to ask a question concerning the reliability that others find
with these microtomes.  Does everyone else who uses this particular one
find it to cut all types of tissue with consistency? I only have one
tech who uses this piece of equipment due to ergonomic issues and I
cannot seem to ascertain if the problems that are encountered are tech
related or the microtome itself.  I would appreciate any feedback you
could give me on your experiences with the Leica 2155, other automated
microtomes on the market in comparison, etc.  As always, thank you for
your help!!!
