Enlightening the block
The Accu-Cut® SRM™ 300 LT Manual Microtome is the first and only manual microtome with a patented multi-colored LED backlit chuck to illuminate paraffin embedded tissue samples making them much easier to see and safer to section.
The backlight increases contrast between specimens and paraffin so users can see exactly where the tissue is located to prevent cutting through a small biopsy or previously sectioned block.
The Accu-Cut® SRM™ 300 LT features a 3D Precision Chuck for accurate alignment of the block face to the blade on all three axes (XYZ), which is crucial for recuts. The sturdy chuck retains its position when locked and unlocked, eliminating any time and effort spent realigning the cutting angle. The 3D Precision Chuck can quickly and accurately be returned to a zero position with the dial indicators.
The compact and ergonomic design helps to minimize cumulative stress on the user and increases both efficiency and productivity. The course hand wheel is optimally sized and positioned for comfortable trimming in either clockwise or counterclockwise rotation and is switchable by the user.
The Accu-Cut® SRM™ 300 LT includes many exclusive features that reduce the risk of accidental injuries associated with blade exposure:
- The first and only Brake Lock Indicator that displays that the chuck is locked and will not move while the user interacts with the microtome, providing users with peace-of-mind.
- The Red Blade Guard can be set in the UP position to protect the user from accidental exposure to the blade edge while sectioning.
- A Universal Blade Holder base, featuring lateral displacement, allows operators to use the full length of the microtome blade without releasing the blade clamping mechanism or direct blade manipulation.
- The Accu-Cut® SRM™ 300 LT is the first and only microtome to offer a space-saving Tool Organizer giving back precious bench space.
Compatible with Accu-Edge® Disposable Blades, the Accu-Cut® SRM™ 300 LT ensures superior sectioning in the precise art of cutting quality tissue samples section after section, time after time.
