I am looking to use a Reichert-Jung Polycut S Microtome to cut MMA thin sections (5-10 microns). However the specimens I am cutting are very small. How do you go about gripping such small sections on such a microtome? I have tried using a dental mount to adhere the specimen to a blank MMA block - however the block or knife slipped and ruined the specimen. If anyone could offer tips/tricks/suggestions, that would be great!

Thank you,
Jessica Riggleman
