Vibrating blade microtome

The Leica VT1000 S vibrating blade microtome is used to cut fresh or fixed tissue, embedded into low-melting agarose, with the help of a vibrating razor blade. The frequency and amplitude of the razor blade movement can be altered to meet the specific properties of your sample (hard versus soft tissues). Individual sections are collected with a fine brush or a pipette and can be viewed directly or after staining with a widefield or confocal laser scanning microscope.
