The VF-800-0Z is designed for sectioning the tissue of larger animals.  With a diameter of up to 95 mm, it allows the brain sectioning of cat, dogs, pigs, and monkeys.  Many neuroanatomy and neuropathology experiments require sectioning entire brains from these animals. The VF-800-0Z is capable of sectioning slices for these large primates down to 40 microns.
With our patented compression technology, this fully automated slicer excels at sectioning slices used for:
The Compresstome® is also easy to use. Our online training videos will allow everyone in your lab to produce excellent slices.


How is the Compresstome® different from a vibrating microtome?  You can read about a discussion thread on ResearchGate on selecting the best tissue sectioning tool for you.

The Compresstome® is also the best machine to cut adult and senior brain slices.  The paper and the associated protocol can be found in Brain Slice Methods.
