I just bought Thermo's Excelsior processor, Gemini stainer, and the
Cryotome FE.  I love them all. I have had awesome customer service, and
the quality of my slides has improved immensely.  The processor has
reduced waste by more then 75% as you change solutions based on specific
gravity, and not on a set schedule.  The processor is very user
friendly.  The Cryotome FE I have only had a couple of months, but it is
great.  The cryo bar boosts to -50 in minutes.  It also has a fumigation
cycle that uses only 3mL of formaldehyde solution.  My opinion?  Thermo

Hi All,
So I'm in the process of setting up my new lab and am meeting with all
of sales reps. Today was the Thermo guy. We liked his products and of
course, according to him they are all 100 times better than the
We are very impressed with Richard Allens microm line, especially for
cryostats and microtomes. Does anybody have any feedback as to which
they prefer? I know Thermo bought Richard Allen recently so it might not
matter in the future but any feedback on whether it is well worth the
to spend the extra for microm products would be helpful.
