Compresstome® VF-310-0Z Vibrating Microtome (Tissue Slicer)

New Compresstome® VF-310-0Z Vibrating Microtome with Auto Zero-Z™ technology for electrophysiology and organotypic culture applications, and for preparing precision-cut live slices.



This model  is an update of the VF-300-0Z with improved buffer tray and blade holder designs that make the instrument easier to use. Additionally, the control box is attached to the main body of the instrument, making it more portable.


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,
