We also use those blades and love them.  We've tried others but always
come back to the Accu-edge.  I have always noticed a film of oil on the
blades.  I usually wipe the edge of the blade with a kimwipe before
using it.

Subject: [Histonet] accu-edge low profile microtome blades

Hello all,

We use the accu-edge low profile microtome blades (exclusively, as they
best for us).  We noticed an oil/lubricant of some sort on the blades in
last box that we opened (we checked one other box and it has the same,
although none previously did, or at least we didn't notice it).  The oil
giving us problems with our sectioning.  Has anyone else noticed this,
either now or in the past?

Also, does anyone have a suggestions of other blades we should use?

Thanks for your input,
Brandi Higgins, BS, HT(ASCP)
