Compresstome® VF-200-0Z Vibrating Microtome (Tissue Slicer)

The entry level Compresstome® VF-200-0Z Vibrating Microtome with Auto Zero-Z™ technology is used for electrophysiology and organotypic culture applications, and for preparing precision-cut lung slices.


Auto Zero-Z™ technology removes Z-axis deflection by calibration during the manufacturing process. This means you never have to calibrate the slicer, and there is no shearing of tissue surfaces during sectioning,

Description
Details

The Compresstome® VF-200-0Z is a semi-automated vibrating microtome for sectioning fixed and live tissues, down to 10 µm precision. This model comes with Auto Zero-Z™ technology, which removes Z-axis deflection by calibration during the manufacturing process. This means you never have to calibrate the slicer, and there is no shearing of tissue surfaces during sectioning. Comes with one-year warranty.
