• Temperature range : 0°C to – 45°C
  • Maximum sample size : 40 x 55 mm
  • Cutting thickness adjustment : 0.5 to 300 μm
  • Accurate sample orientation : within 8° (x/y/z axis)

Technical characteristics

An independent object head cooling system allows the temperature of the sample to be effectively modified and controlled to suit the most delicate samples such as brain or fat tissue.

The precise sample orientation system with zero position allows x/y adjustment to within 8°. The sample feed system, with a horizontal feed of 25 mm, allows fine and reproducible cuts.

Preselection of the number of cuts in both roughing and cutting modes Use limited to small parts.
