Microtome MR355AT

Automatic rotary microtome OPTA-TECH MR-355AT

The Fully Automatic Microtome provides utmost reliable, user benefit and outstanding operator comfort. Great basic stability and precision, make this microtome a real multi-purpose instrument that meets the requirements both in paraffin and hard sectioning techniques of the biological, medical and industrial lab.

Product specifications

  • Fully automatic or manual model. Its two-in-one design concept, which allows motorized and manual sectioning, provides reproducible high-quality sections.
  • Adopted Germany motor drive ensure slice more precisely, more reliable and quiet
  • The touch screen shows slice and trimming thickness, section counter, mode and speed, stroke distance
  • Special function of specimen retraction which avoid the damage due to the attrition between sample and the back of knife so that the sectioning is more smooth and the life of the knife is more longer
  • Model of Blade Carrier for High or Lower Disposable Blades
  • The hand wheel can be locked in any position to ensure the sectioning as safe and convenient as possible
  • The waste tray can be disassembled easily
  • Safely alarm system, overload protection function, sleep mode protection
  • Universal cassette clamp and standard specimen clamp
  • Emergency stop
  • Foot Switch to control the Section
  • Easy operation with Separated Control Panel
