The regular Minot type (rotary) microtomes usually have a maximum of 2.5 inches block travel. For larger blocks you will need a horizontal microtome, they are just what is needed for this type of specimen.

  I am looking for any information on Whole Mount Slides. Our pathologists
would like to start doing them on Prostate and Bladder tissue. I have
researched and located 
a microtome attachment from Leica and SurgiPath carries oversized
cassettes and embedding molds. Does anyone have any information to add?
Processing/cutting issues? Supplies? I would like to be as informed as
possible before taking the plunge............ Thank You in advance!
