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 protocol can be found in Brain Slice Methods.

The VF900-0Z is designed for sectioning the tissue of larger animals. With a diameter of up to 165 mm, it allows the sectioning of human brains.  Many neuroanatomy and neuropathology experiments require sectioning entire brains from these animals, and there have been no answer for this need until now.  The VF900 is capable of sectioning slices for these tissues down to 40 microns.
With our patented compression technology, this fully automated slicer excels at sectioning slices used for:
  • immunohistochemistryThe Compresstome™ is also easy to use. Our online training videos will allow everyone in your lab to produce excellent slices.
