Compresstome® VF-300-0Z Vibrating Microtome

The VF-300-0Z is the Auto Zero-Z® version of our workhorse Compresstome®. The Compresstome® VF-300-0Z is a vibrating microtome for cutting tissue slices, similar to cryostats and vibratomes. This model comes with Auto Zero-Z® technology, which removes Z-axis deflection by calibration during the manufacturing process. This means you never have to calibrate the slicer, and there is no shearing of tissue surfaces during sectioning! The VF-300-0Z can section both fixed and live tissues, is fully automated with an ability to cut tissue thicknesses ranging from 4µm to 2000µm, at 1µm precision. Comes with full one (1) year limited warranty.
The VF-300-0Z is compatible with specimen tube sizes of the following diameters:

  • 6.5mm
  • 12.5mm
  • 15.5mm

With our compression technology, this fully automated slicer excels at sectioning slices used for:
