What size specimen tubes do you offer for your Compresstome® models?

The VF-310-0Z, VF-500-0Z, and VF-210-0Z models all accommodate either a 15.5 mm or 20 mm diameter specimen tube. Each Compresstome® order includes 1 set of specimen tubes from one of the two sizes. We also sell additional specimen tubes and specimen tube kits for purchase, which include two specimen tubes, one buffer tray, and one chilling block of the same-size diameter.

For larger tissue samples, such as macaque brain, our VF-800-0Z model is made with either a 75 mm or 100 mm diameter specimen tube and this size is fixed on the machine.
