One of the things that we are keen to do at Precisionary Instruments to help push the boundaries of scientific research.  That’s why it’s always cool to see how scientists have modified and enhanced the Compresstome.  At the Allen Institute, their “open science” concept puts neuroscientists together with system engineers to come up with some extremely cool ideas, and conjure them into existence.
We are proud that the Compresstome can be part of this (at 1:34-1:50 and 3:10), helping the scientists work with both mouse brains as well as human brain tissues.

Zero Z without the hassle
You may be asking yourself, “how is the Compresstome different from a vibratome?”  You can read about a discussion thread on ResearchGate on selecting the best tissue sectioning tool for you.
The Compresstome is also the best machine to cut adult and senior brain slices.  The paper and the associated protocal can be found in Brain Slice Methods.

The VF-300-0Z is the Auto Zero-ZTM version of our workhorse Compresstome™.  With our compression technology, this fully automated slicer excels at sectioning slices used for

Our slicer technology allows you to double your slice viability.  The Compresstome™ is also easy to use, our online training videos will allow everyone in your lab to produce excellent slices.
