Dear List Members,

I am now studying the soft tissue mechanics. I need to cut a thin sample (thickness about 0.2-1.0 mm) from soft tissue. Since I am not familiar with preparing soft tissue samples, I now just glue two blades together with a thin plate inside to control the thickness between the two blades. The problems are:

1, I can't make sure that the thickness long the blade is the same due to the glue thickness;
2, I can't easily get the sample out of the blade.

I have searched the web but fail to find such tissue cutter. Is there any special tool for this? It is highly appreciated if you can share your experience about this.

Thanks!
