Compresstome® VF-300-0Z Vibrating Microtome

The VF-300-0Z is the Auto Zero-Z® version of our workhorse Compresstome®.  With our compression technology, this fully automated slicer excels at sectioning slices used for:
Our slicer technology allows you to double your slice viability.  The Compresstome® is also easy to use. Our online training videos will allow everyone in your lab to produce excellent slices.

Why Choose Our Compresstome®?

  • Patented compression technology and agarose embedding process stabilizes tissue and eliminates chattermarks
  • Slices over 5x faster than other market Vibrating Microtome
  • 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

Applications of Compresstome®

Experimental applications of the Compresstome include cutting tissue slices for:

  • Electrophysiology: For acute brain slices, cardiac or myocardiac recordings, and kidney slices
  • Immunohistochemistry: For fixed tissue as thin as 4µm
  • Organotypic cultures: For cultured slice experiments
  • Precision-cut live slices: lung, liver, kidney, spleen slices
  • Imaging: Fluorescent imaging of slices
  • In-situ hybridization: RNA detection
  • Electron microscopy: Studies of micro-architecture and cellular anatomy
