Dear Colleague,

Does anybody know a microtome for precisely cutting a soft tissue specimen,
such as cartilage, meniscus, or ligament? I would like to make a thin slice of
soft connective tissue with a uniform thickness within an accuracy of 0.1mm.
I've heard a brand name "Vibratome 1000". But, I couldn't find any information
about it. I will appreciate if any of you can give me some informations or
suggestions regarding the specimen preparation of soft tissue for biomechanical
