Ask a Question

This handheld microtome is for introductory biology and histology work. Suitable for slicing micro thin sections from 0.02mm to 10mm. A threaded piston screws into the stage to advance the specimen. The dial at the bottom of the instrument moves the piston up or down the central tube when rotated. The dial is marked 0 - 49 and aligns with a guide mark to measure graduations. Advancement is in 0.02mm 
increments, and can rise up to 10mm in height. A thumb-screw at the side of the tube controls an arm that tightens against the specimen for extra stabilization. Sections are cut by drawing a razor over the upper flat surface of the instrument. Includes a retractable utility knife.
