Does anyone have any experience using hand microtomes? I have found that a box type and a circular type are available. I'm looking for something I can take with me to Panama for my field work but no one in my working group has prior experience with this type of equipment so I'm a little unsure which one to go with
I will be using it to cross-section aerial orchid roots, some of which will have a diameter of only a couple millimeters max.
Any suggestions would be appreciated!
