Available for sale in U.S.A. only


histo

The histo knife is designed for the sectioning of hard and soft biological and material research specimens, non-embedded or embedded in acrylic or epoxy resins. The histo knives can be used on all ultramicrotomes as well as on microtomes with a retraction of the specimen arm in the return phase. Section thicknesses range 0.2 to 2µm. Standard histo boat. Blade widths, 4.0, 6.0 and 8.0mm.

histo cryo

The histo cryo knives are delivered with a boat for wet sectioning using a DMSO/water mixture or with a triangular holder for dry sectioning. Section thicknesses range 0.2 to 2µm. Triangular holder (dry) or small histo boat (wet). Blade widths, 4.0, 6.0 and 8.0mm.

histo Jumbo

For 3D reconstruction, it is imperative not to lose a single section. The jumbo boat into which a glass slide can be dipped as well as the contact adhesive (Pattex contact cement by Henkel)*, applied to the leading face of the pyramid, increases the advantages of our histo knives. They allow sections to stick together to form section ribbons (0.5 – 2 µm), ensuring no section loss, no folding, the same orientation of all sections, easy collection of section ribbons, and multiple ribbons on one glass slide. The perfect knife for immunohistochemistry. Section thicknesses range 0.5 to 2µm. Jumbo histo boat. Blade widths, 4.0, 6.0 and 8.0mm.
