Saws, Laboratory, Electric, Rotary
Definition : Electric saws designed to precisely cut laboratory samples of hard tissue (e.g., bone) with minimal damage and deformation, using a serrated blade that rotates at a variable speeds. These saws are typically heavy-duty bench-mounted, powered instruments with an electric motor; a mechanism to drive the blade; a flat, detachable, circular, toothed blade; a variety of sample holders; and an electric cable. Rotary electric laboratory saws are used to cut bone (including teeth), either in original form or embedded in resin, usually to prepare thin sample sections.
