Cut high-quality paraffin sections without a power supply using the robust HM 325 Rotary Microtome. The HM 325 features retraction at the return travel to protect the specimen and the manual coarse advance allows for fast working. The virtually resistance-free hand wheel can be locked in any position.
XY fine orientation controls are located on the left side of the specimen head with the section thickness control knobs located bilaterally on each side of the unit. Offering XY orientation knobs allow for easier repositioning of the block. The HM 325 also offers selectable retraction from the left side of the unit. Placing the controls on the left side of the instruments allows the technicican to maintain control of the flywheel on the right while making necessary adjustments.
The blade holder offers removable levers and sets on parallel guide rails which creates a large wraparound want tray to completely surrond the blade holder allowing for quick and easy cleanup behind the blade.
The optional accessory Section Transfer System™ (STS) reduces manual handling of the ribbons by automatically transferring them from the blade to the water bath. With the adjustable, laminar water flow rate section damage is avoided allowing for more usable sections per block. The smooth water flow stretches the sections providing an extremely thin, high quality section.
Working on extended cutting periods to do “step sectioning” or “serial sectioning”, look to the Cool Cut Accessory to maintain the block temperature while performing the sectioning. The Cool Cut optional accessories maintains a cool, consistent temperature for paraffin blocks during the sectioning process. Compatible with HM 325 and HM 340E.
