Question: Do I need to decontaminate the microtome between different tissue types?
Answer: If you are sectioning different types of tissues, we recommend wiping down the blade with 100% ethanol or changing blades between each tissue block. Additionally, it’s best practice to use brushes to clean up the sectioning area before proceeding to the next tissue block. We recommend wiping down the microtome and brushes with 100% ethanol for general maintenance before and after sectioning sessions.
