I have a small research lab with an old (very old) Minot IEC microtome 
cryostat, which is on its last legs. In starting to shop for a new one, 
I was wondering how much difference a motorized one would make.  We do 
mostly fresh frozen (unfixed) mouse brain and lymph node sections. Are 
the sections any better?
Thanks for any opinions on this and any recommendations on a good 
cryostat at a reasonable cost.
