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 VF800-0Z is designed for sectioning the tissue of larger animals. With a diameter of up to 95 mm, it allows the brain sectioning of cat, dogs, pigs, and monkeys. Many neuroanatomy and neuropathology experiments require sectioning entire brains from these animals, and there have been no answer for this need until now. The VF800 is capable of sectioning slices for these large primates down to 40 microns.
With our patented compression technology, this fully automated slicer excels at sectioning slices used for
The Compresstome™ is also easy to use, our online training videos will allow everyone in your lab to produce excellent slices.
