AO820 Microtome - how to attach a standard cassette?

#1 Post by Higgo » Mon Jul 22, 2019 8:13 am

Hey! First time poster hunting around the net for help and chanced upon this great forum - great to see!

My question is, can anyone help point me in the right direction to purchase an "828 Johns Hopkins Clamp", which was an accessory originally available with the AO 820 Microtome to basically hold biggest cassettes. My microtome has the stock 825 objective clamp. Link to the manual below. ... rotome.pdf

Essentially I would like to be able to use standard sizes cassettes (such as in the link below).

Alternatively, does anyone know of a smaller cassette that can fit inside the 825 objective clamp (max size 32 mm x 27 mm). I am sectioning incisors mainly from deer for CA analysis. ... cassettes/

Thankyou all very much for any help you may be able to provide!
