Easy to use: The operation of the Compresstome® is simpler than that of other vibrating slicers. Close monitoring is unnecessary. You can learn how to use it by watching 2-3 short 3 minute videos online.
Thinner slices: With traditional vibrating slicers, you start seeing slices shredding around 20 µm. With the Compresstome®, you can consistently section slices at 3 µm.
Smoother slices: The wavy chatter marks or vibration marks indicate the trails of the oscillating blade of the slicer. In the Compresstome®, the vibration mark is completely eliminated from the slice surface by our patented Compression technology.
High quality images: Images of slices cut with the Compresstome® are sharper ,with fewer scratches and distortion.
Versatile: Need to do some electrophysiology work as well? The VF-300-0Z is also great at slicing acute tissues, saving your money and lab space.
Consistent slice thickness: The unique specimen embedding, holding and clamping mechanisms minimizes specimen movement in all three dimensions during slicing. Consistent slice thickness can be achieved. Slice thickness varies less than 5 percent of the slice thickness (250 µm), compared to 10 to 20 percent in classic slicers.
Fast cutting: For vibrating blade tissue slicers, it takes up to 30 seconds to cut a slice. The Compresstome® takes less than 2 seconds to cut a slice.
