Microtomes, Ultra

Definition : Microtomes with superior stability and accuracy that cut tissue specimens for microscopic analysis in the histopathology laboratory using a steel, tungsten-carbide-tipped, or glass knife. They are specially designed to cut thin sections of tissue that have been embedded in a medium (e.g., paraffin, plastic) and are convenient for high-volume routine sectioning. Tissue block sections can be cut at 0.5 to 0.2 um. The major components are the feed pawl system, which steps the specimen into the knife or the knife into the specimen; the specimen cylinder; the flywheel; and the knife holder system. The knife holder system is adjustable and designed to accommodate various types of knives and to lock the knife into position for cutting.
