Features and applications:
- Section thickness: 1-25 Ám
microtome is an instrument favoured for the cutting of paraffin
sections. The compact design, acknowledged stability and precision make
it the perfect instrument of histology.
The vertical object
movement, the fixed knife, the convenient movement of the object sledge
by means of a handwheel ensure uniform series of sections of medical
and biological objects of good cutting properties. It is also
extended to the cutting of thin sections of hard and difficult-to-cut
biological and non-biological objects such as bone and fibres embedded
in hard plastic media.
Microtome knives: standard knife (L170mm, W42mm, T13mm); also useable with a Feather disposable blade holder.
