Vibratome 3000 Tissue Sectioning System

Vibratome 3000 Tissue Sectioning System

Cambridge ID #: 18862

Description:

The Vibratome 3000 Plus Sectioning System provides a versatile means of sectioning fresh or fixed, animal or plant tissues. It employs a vibrating blade principle, which allows sectioning without freezing or embedding. The creation of artifacts, the alteration of morphology, the destruction of enzyme activities, and other deleterious effects inherent in freezing or embedding procedures are thus avoided.

Specifications:

  • Bath: Insulated black for better temperature control
  • Foot Switch: Optional
  • Sectioning Window: 10 - 40 mm
  • Dimensions (D x W x H): 460 x 280 x 310 mm
  • Weight: 15.5 kg

Microm HM 450 Sliding Microtome

Microm HM 450 Sliding Microtome

Cambridge ID #: 18863

Description:

The sliding microtome HM 450 from Thermo Scientific is a highly efficient instrument with specimen retraction during return travel. It can be used for sectioning paraffin in the routine lab. The main applications are in human and veterinary medicine. Moreover, the sliding microtome can be used for the specimen preparation in the medical and industrial research. Large and hard specimens from pharmaceuticals industry or from quality assurance labs can also be sectioned. The cross roller bearings on sledge and block allow non-tiring working and a smooth sliding movement with optimal stability. The HM 450 will cut sections from 0 µm to 100 µm. The specimen clamping can be moved up and downwards via the two arrow-shaped coarse feed buttons on the left side of the instrument. This way, specimen and knife edge distance can be adjusted quickly. The knife carrier is designed so the knives can be easily clamped in place and adjusted. The coaxial specimen orientation allows orientation with one hand.

Specifications:

  • Power requirements: 100 V, 0.5 A, 50/60 Hz
  • Pollution degree: 2
  • Overvoltage category: II
  • Sound pressure: 39 dB(A) measured with 1 m distance to the instrument
  • Dimensions (W x D x H): 370 x 460 x 320 mm
  • Weight: 23 kg
  • Cutting drive: manual sliding movement
  • Coarse feed: electronic via stepping motor
  • Feed: automatic via sliding movement or manual via feed button
  • Operating conditions: + 5°C up to + 35°C

Krumdieck MD6000 Live Tissue Microtome

Krumdieck MD6000 Live Tissue Microtome

Cambridge ID #: 18864

Description:

The instrument provides samples of uniform and reproducible thickness, minimizes damage to surfaces of slices and thereby eliminates the main sources of error in tissue slice work. Slices from approximately 100 to 500 microns in thickness can be prepared at a maximum rate of one slice every 3 to 4 seconds. The slicer operates submerged in a buffer selected by the operator as most appropriate in terms of composition, tonicity, pH, temperature, oxygenation and lubricating properties to maintain the viability of the tissues being sectioned. The microtome and the reservoir with the glass trap are sterilizable to allow the preparation of aseptic slices suitable for prolonged organ culture. The actual slicing is done by a rapidly reciprocating disposable blade oscillating at 1000 to 2500 rpm driven by a motor that also powers the impeller.  The tissue slicer contains a cooling block which allows the temperature of the buffer solution in the slicer’s reservoir to be maintained.

Dako AutoStainer LV-1 Universal Staining System

Dako AutoStainer LV-1 Universal Staining System

Cambridge ID #: 8315

Features:

 

  • Slide Rack: is a slide carrier holding 12 microscope slides in a horizontal position. The instrument holds a maximum of 4 racks. These racks are removable and interchangeable for slide loading and unloading.
  • Glass Slide: is a standard microscope slide to which specimen(s) is mounted for processing on the instrument. Slide dimensions are 25mm x 75mm x 1mm.
  • Reagent Racks 1 and 2: hold the reagent vials. There are 2 reagent racks: reagent rack 1(white) sits in the front right side of the sink; reagent rack 2 (blue) sits behind reagent rack 1. The racks are identical in shape and size. Each rack holds up to 32 reagent vials and is marked with letters A-D and numbers 1-8 to designate each reagent vial position. The computer always assigns reagents to the front white rack first. If additional reagents are required for a procedure or for running the cleaning protocol the computer will assign reagents to the blue rack.
