Key features

    • Allows for single & continuous cutting modes
    • Creates free-floating section in buffer tray
    • Allows for large samples up to 100mm diameter
    • Horizontal, top-facing cutting mechanism
    • Compression technology gives high-quality slices

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
