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.
