may for microsurgery or microdissection. I use tungsten wire (0.5 or 0.25
mm diameter) mounted in a regular needle holder for the microdissection of
embryonic day 2.5 - 3.5 chick neural tube, somites & notochords. It's the
best stuff I've found for really fine work & you can sterilize it after you
sharpen it electrolytically (no grindstone for me Haha). Any good for your
