Introducing the Compresstome VF-800-0Z: Revolutionizing High-Throughput Tissue Sectioning

Published on February 13, 2024

Challenges in High-Throughput Tissue Sectioning

Are you facing challenges with tissue sectioning efficiency or the need for high-throughput slicing? If so, our latest innovation, the Compresstome VF-800-0Z vibratome, may hold the solution you’ve been searching for.

Compresstome VF-800-0Z for High-Throughput Tissue Sectioning

We are thrilled to announce the successful design and testing of our new “high-throughput” vibratome, the Compresstome VF-800-0Z. This cutting-edge device allows for the simultaneous sectioning of multiple samples, drastically improving workflow efficiency. With the capability to embed 20+ samples at once, researchers can achieve unparalleled levels of productivity in their experiments. First, here is what our new model looks like:

During our testing of the Compresstome VF-800-0Z, we made several exciting discoveries that we’re eager to share with you:

  • The Compresstome VF-800-0Z allowed us to easily embed dozens of egg white core samples on the specimen plunger (i.e., loading platform), with the potential to accommodate even more samples if needed. Essentially, there is the possibility to cut 20+ samples at once.
  • Embedding in agarose and chilling the agarose during the prep process was quick, streamlining the workflow.
  • We were able to obtain complete agarose “sheets” containing our samples, which facilitated easy differentiation and tracking of each sample.
  • We were able to section thicknesses from 25µm to 500 µm, achieving slice thicknesses of: 25, 30, 35, 40, 50, 60, 80, 100, 150, 200, 250, 300, 400, and 500 µm. 

These findings underscore the versatility and efficiency of the Compresstome VF-800-0Z in meeting the diverse needs of researchers in tissue sectioning applications. With just one “slice” using our latest vibratome, you can generate a sufficient number of tissue samples to fill an entire well plate. Check it out:

Excited for a live lab demonstration? 😊 Witness our Compresstome VF-800-0Z vibratome in action as it precisely sections numerous live mouse lungs for precision-cut lung slices (PCLS). Just a few slices yield dozens to hundreds of PCLS, ready for plating, incubation, and further analysis:

Still not convinced? Take a look at how the Compresstome VF-800-0Z streamlines the process of embedding and sectioning multiple organs from a mouse model simultaneously. With this innovative device, organs such as spleens, kidneys, hearts, and lungs can all be embedded at once, and multiple sections can be collected with a single cut. This remarkable capability enables scientists to slash their sectioning time from a laborious 2-day process down to just 2 hours. Now that’s efficiency and significant time (and cost) savings!
