Rocking Microtome

Rocking Microtome

Price: 230.83 / 258.53 (Excluding VAT at 20%)

Ideal for sectioning wax embedded animal and plant material. Precision engineering. Calibrated in 2 micron divisions. Complete with knife and specimen chuck. Universally recognised for its ease of use.

Brunel YD Rotary Microtome

Brunel YD Rotary Microtome

Price: 795.83 / 891.33 (Excluding VAT at 20%)

This is a substantial rotary microtome ideal for those wanting to use microtomy over a wide spectrum of tissue types. Its main advantage over the Brunel Rocker is that it can cut hard tissues including decalcified bone and softened wood. The specimen clamp can hold a block up to 25 x 35mm and its angle towards the cutting knife can be altered in all directions. The cutting stroke is controlled by the hand wheel and the pressure of the cut can be altered to suit the material being sectioned. Hard tissues need to be cut slowly for example. The YD rotary can cut wax sections between 2 and 25 microns in thickness and the horizontal feed is calibrated in single microns. The instrument is complete with a wedge microtome knife and a knife back for sharpening. The YD will also take a disposable knife blade holder that is available as an accessory.
