General Description

The Vibratome® series of fresh tissue sectioning systems allows sectioning of fresh or fixed tissue without freezing or embedding. The patented vibrating blade principle moves the sectioning blade edge in a reciprocating arcuate path as it penetrates the specimen. The reduced effective edge angle from the transverse movements, with the lateral distribution of the cutting edge penetrating pressure, minimize elastic deformation of soft tissue specimens that are simply held or capsulated in position during the sectioning operation
