SEE WHAT SETS US APART!

  • Patented compression technology and agarose embedding process stabilizes tissue and eliminates chattermarks
  • Slices over 5x faster than other market Vibratomes
  • Preserves surface neurons yielding over 2x healthy/dead cell ratios and significantly improving patch clamping results for electrophysiology
  • Slice thickness ranging from 4 μm-2000μm
  • No freezing needed! Allowing for free floating staining for better IHC – lmmunohistochemistry results
  • Fully automated slicing, so no more tedious cryostat cranking
  • Auto Zero-Z® technology reduces z-axis deflection to <1 μm
  • Light footprint for increased portability

The Compresstome® vibratomes are tissue slicers that have been designed and patented by Precisionary Instruments to achieve healthier and smoother sections for better research results. Using an advanced agarose-embedding technique, both fresh and fixed specimens can be completely stabilized during the cutting process, which yields slices with consistent thicknesses and better maintains structural morphology to help scientists obtain reliable data. Traditional vibratomes often struggle with very thin slices for immunohistochemistry, or shred those precious (and expensive) brain samples for Electrophysiology, but the Compresstome® vibratome can solve all of these problems without the need to freeze tissue or use expensive cryostat machines!

What makes the Compresstome® vibratome better? For fresh tissue, our vibratome cuts faster and causes less damage to surface structures to give you slices with an increased number of healthy cells—making your electrophysiology and imaging experiments easier. For fixed tissue, the Compresstome® can cut anywhere from 4 µm- to 500 µm-thick slices, without chatter marks or vibration artifacts. The faster, automated process of slicing helps you save time in obtaining fixed tissue sections for immunohistochemistry or in situ hybridization experiments. The Compresstome® vibratome is capable of all of this and more, and at a lower price than the competition!
