Hands-on tool for scientific studies
- Built in safety features
- Adjustable section thickness
Cut sections to 40-50 microns safely and easily with this microtome, which features a clear plastic safety cover, fixed blade and rugged plastic construction for hands-on student use.
Simply secure the specimen in the holder, advance using the feed screw, then draw it over the blade. The feed screw moves the specimen only 0.5 mm per complete rotation, and can be advanced as little as 10 microns. For very thin sections, the specimen can be wrapped in an artificial pith.
