WHAT SETS PRECISIONARY MICROTOMES APART

Agarose embedding is the process of  embedding your tissue sample with agarose solution before you cut tissue slices with the Compresstome© vibratome. It takes only a fraction of the user’s time for sectioning overall and aids in the production of healthier and smoother tissue slides.

These vibrating heads are precisely aligned to eliminate vibrations in the Z-axis. Auto Zero-Z® technology helps reduce damage to surface cells on live tissue samples, and further reduce chattermarks on thin sections for improved imaging results

Experience unparalleled customer service with fast response times. Our dedicated team supports scientists and clinicians, ensuring successful research for years to come.
