We have 2 of the Microm cryostats with vacutomes, and our pathologists
really like them. We also have 1 Microm microtome (HM315) and the tech
that uses it absolutely loves it. It does cut much better than our other
microtomes which are Reichert-Jung 2030, and a Leica RM2135. We would
definitely purchase Micron cryostats or microtomes again.

Subject: [Histonet] thermo vs microm

Hi All,
So I'm in the process of setting up my new lab and am meeting with all
kinds 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
would 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 money to spend the extra for microm products would be helpful.
