Histotechnology, a discipline which still has much art and continues 
to baffle the regulators :-)

My Histotech was asking for a tamper and we discovered an aluminum 
pipe nail works well. Your local pipe and tobacco shop usually has a 
jar near checkout. They work very well.

We have added a Tobacco Shop, Beauticians Supply and Dollar Store to 
our Lab supplier's list.
