Rotary Microtome for Sectioninggo to Microtome Blades

HMT-2258 Manual Rotary Microtome

The HMT-2258 Manual Rotary Microtome offers a sleek, but sturdy, straightforward instrument for sectioning of paraffin embedded tissue. The HMT-2258 Manual Rotary Microtome is a cost-efficient and compact unit designed to meet the microtomy needs of all standard histology laboratories. The smooth counter-balanced hand wheel allows freedom of control but limits fatigue. The wheel may be locked in any position. The universal cassette block holder with self-contained level affords versatility and multiple angle adjustments for different tissues or embedding demands. The coarse advance wheel allows a controlled approach for efficient trimming. The section thickness window is easily viewed and adjusted on the front of the instrument.

The HMT-2258 Manual Rotary Microtome includes a knife holder capable of handling both high and low profile blades. The knife holder has smooth lateral movement to utilize the full length of the cutting blade and slides easily onto the dovetail base. For added safety, the knife holder comes equipped with an attached knife guard to cover the blade when the instrument is unattended. The knife guard also contains an ejecting pin mechanism for safe and simple removal and disposal. The knife clearance angle, 0 - 10°, can be adjusted on the knife holder base. A waste tray slides effortlessly under the front of the unit and is easily removed for cleaning.

Tissue Embedding Station

Tissue Embedding Unit Tissue Embedding Unit, angle view  

The Tissue Embedding Station is a complete system designed for embedding tissue in paraffin. The embedding center embodies a clever modular design allowing laboratory workflow and space issues to determine the layout of a complete footprint dimension of 35" x 24" x 31" (889 x 609 x 787mm). The paraffin workstation (TEU-P) contains a 2.0L paraffin reservoir and 2 additional tanks for molds and cassettes. These additional tanks provide a controlled heated environment for the processed cassettes and eliminate the xylene contamination from the paraffin reservoir tank. Each tank can be programmed individually for temperature.

The paraffin reservoir has a convenient removable screen for eliminating debris. The Tissue Embedding Unit contains a heated worktable with an easily accessible built-in forceps warmer. Both of these are also independently temperature controlled. A recessed LED lamp provides bright illumination for the worktable. A paraffin waste drawer handles overflow from the worktable and forceps warmer. The dispenser nozzle for the molten paraffin has its own temperature control and dispensing can be operated by touch plate or foot pedal that is included with the unit. All 5 independent temperature controls utilize 4 pre-set temperatures for each area.

The Tissue Embedding Station features a programmable day/time selector that includes a full 7-day selection option. The granite cool top offers the opportunity for tissue orientation prior to moving the mold to the cooling unit. The cooling unit (TEU-C) provides a large 12" x 12" (304.8 x 304.8mm) surface area for blocks. The lowest cooling temperature for the unit is -30°C/-4°F. This Tissue Embedding Station delivers a high level of versatility and control, typically seen on higher priced instruments. The Tissue Embedding Station presents a comprehensive system in an attractive and functional package designed for the active and progressive clinical or research histology laboratory.

Tissue Floatation Water Bath

Tissue Floatation Water Bath

Our glass Tissue Floatation Water Bath has been developed using microprocessor controls and a modular design that has improved reliability and precision. The unit is low profile with a removable rectangular glass basin for easy cleaning. The glass basin is illuminated by LED light from the side allowing clear observation without glare against the black background. There is an ON/OFF switch on the control panel for the LED light. Temperature settings are controlled by push buttons for accurate and precise control and the easy to read LED displays show both set temperature and actual temperature. The corrosion resistant, stainless steel temperature probe flips down into place. The probe has a thermostat sensor inside that turns off when it is lifted up and re-starts when placed back into the basin.
