Especially tailored for those who do electrophysiology, we have developed a new and improved model called the Compresstome VF-500-0Z.

What are the key features?

Improved slice health

  • The Compresstome VF-500-0Z can section tissues to as thin as 2 µm thick. This presents tissue loss and damage, and is an excellent feature for brain connectome 3D reconstruction.
  • Improves brain slice viability
  • Manual blade alignment allows for a smaller gap (<0.1mm) between the cutting blade and the specimen tube edge.

Improved durability

  • The Compresstome VF-500-0Z uses a linear re-circulating ball bearing for the vibration head. This helps to reduce blade wobbling.
  • The linear bearing is fully rubber sealed, to prevent dusts and buffer ion build up.

Replacement of VF-300-0Z

  • The new VF-500-0Z model will be replacing the VF-300-0Z. For a limited time, we are offering a 20% discount on the new VF-500-0Z model.
