The 2-in-1 blade holder satisfies the use of high and low-profile blades. Application in Histopathology/Anatomical Pathology

Built upon market-leading microtome machine design, S700 Rotary Microtome enables you to cut sections precisely, safely, and easily. It displays extraordinary ergonomic characteristics for comfortable operation. It is a semi-automatic model that aligns more with your slicing habits.

When working with delicate specimens (for example brain samples) the rotary microtome system will provide reproducible, thin, serial sections of maximum quality time and again. Unique side specimen knob and visual pointer design make specimen advance and retraction more precise. Handwheel double lock system, knife ejector, and guard enhance safety.

  • Precise sampling: Our rotary microtome machine is well-equipped with cross-roller bearings and a Spindle, combined with a five-phase high-resolution Stepper motor and a Link block made of aviation aluminum, forming a high-precision sampling system to ensure slice quality.
  • Accurate positioning: With patented pointer identification technology, our rotary microtome machine enables visual adjustment of the sample angle for pinpoint accuracy in positioning; the knife holder has a small lateral displacement which further enhances accuracy. The base has a scale, which is convenient for the knife holder to locate and improve the quality of slices.
  •  Operator safety: The handwheel dual locking system comes with a lock prompt sound, and is equipped with a knife ejector and a knife guard so that the user can safely replace the sample and blade.
  • Information tracking: Our rotary microtome machine is built with a 5-inch touch screen and history recording system that make it easy to trace back past information and quickly solve problems.
  • Convenient operation: German military-grade side injection knob of the rotary microtome machine conforms to ergonomic design, and the operation is more comfortable and coordinated.
  • Convenient maintenance: special material waste tank, non-wax, easy to clean
