Economical Simple Hand Microtome with Single Edge Blade, Metal (#6399)
This economically priced, hand held microtome is used to cut thin tissue sections to prepare slides for microscope viewing. It is a critical tool in the biology classroom as well as histology labs for introductory work.
The microtome consists of a fine threaded piston which screws into a stage for sectioning. The advancing of the piston is uncalibrated. The knurled head at the bottom of the instrument moves the piston up or down the central tube when rotated. The specimen is fixed on the flat top of the piston and sections are cut by drawing the included blade over the upper flat surface of the instrument.
- Microtome measures 2″ (50 mm) diameter of base x 2.25″ (57 mm) high
- Suitable for slicing micro thin sections from 0.01mm (10 microns) to 10mm
