Doubling the slice viability: The patented Compression technology and our auto zero Z feature stabilizes both the balde and the tissue, giving you many good neurons on the top surface that can be chosen for experiment. Greatly increases your productivity.
Best for older animal and more sensitive brain areas: Vulnerable tissues of older animals and more sensitive nuclei of the brain can still be sliced with the Compresstome™ VF-200 and VF-300, greatly expanding the range of experiments that you can do.
Smoother and cleaner cutting surface: The wavy chatter marks indicate the trails of the oscillating blade of the slicer. In the VF-200 and VF-300 microtome, the vibration mark is eliminated from the slice surface.
High quality images: Images of slices cut with the Compresstome™ VF-200 and VF-300 are sharper ,with fewer scratches and distortion.
Reduce thermal shock: Slicing can be performed in warm temperature (32 degrees C) as well as 4 degrees C. The ability to slice in warm temperature eliminates drastic temperature fluctuation, reducing thermal shock to the tissues.
Quick recovery: The ability to slice in warm temperature allows recovery in less than 20 minutes.
Consistent slice thickness: The unique specimen embedding, holding and clamping mechanisms minimizes specimen movement in all three dimensions during slicing. Slice thickness varies less than 5 percent of the slice thickness (250 µm), compared to 10 to 20 percent in classic slicers.
Versatile: Need to do some immunohistochemistry work as well? The VF-300 is also great at slicing fixed tissues, saving your money and lab space.
Fast cutting: For vibrating blade tissue slicers, it takes up to 30 seconds to cut a slice. The VF-200 and VF-300 takes less than 5 second to cut a slice.
The operation of the VF-200 and VF-300 are simpler than that of other vibrating slicers. Close monitoring is unnecessary. You can learn it by watching a couple of Youtube videos.
