SCILOGEX M3500 Rotary Radial Cutting Microtome w/ Standard Knife Holder & Quick Release Cassette Holder, M3500-01


Making a radical leap forward in wax sectioning technology, the M3500 incorporates a flat-cutting radial action. This has a distinct advantage over a vertical cutting microtome in that the specimen moves along the blade, as well as down on to it, thus producing a slicing cut (similar to a guillotine).This cutting action produces less section compression than other methods and therefore gives excellent results.

SCILOGEX M3500 Rotary Radial Cutting Microtome w/ Standard Knife Holder & Quick Release Cassette Holder, M3500-01

Making a radical leap forward in wax sectioning technology, the M3500 incorporates a flat-cutting radial action. This has a distinct advantage over a vertical cutting microtome in that the specimen moves along the blade, as well as down on to it, thus producing a slicing cut (similar to a guillotine).This cutting action produces less section compression than other methods and therefore gives excellent results.

The M3500 incorporates the latest design thinking, using high quality molded materials to soften curves and strengthen construction while keeping the overall weight down in order for the instrument to remain relatively portable, (cutaways in the plinth act as handgrips) but heavy enough to remain stable whilst sectioning. The optional motoriized advance/rewind switch has been duplicated on either side of the front and other controls have been positioned so that the microtome can be used either front-on or side-on to the operator.

Innovations, including a debris visor doubling up as a safety shield, a debris blind and trap to keep the inner mechanism clean and a deep integral debris tray to take control of waste, add up to make operations easier, cleaner and safer for the operator.
