Tips for buying Microtome

  1. Facilities should consider certain factors to ensure safe and effective operation of a rotary histotome or microtome, such as knife guards and a drive-wheel lock, which are required to prevent injury from the microtome knife.
  2. The microtome/rotary histotome should be able to handle paraffin or plastic at minimum, since most common specimens will be embedded in these materials; specialized applications may require a microtome to handle other embedding materials.
  3. To facilitate handling of the specimen, facilities may also consider a motorized microtome; this type is useful in a high throughput environment where the microtome is used continuously.
  4. Some types of microtomes, such as the microprocessor controlled or motor driven microtomes , can cost several thousand dollars more than manually operated units. In a high volume, short-staffed facility, automated cutting functions save a great deal of operator time and offer invaluable benefits.
  5. In some rotary histotomes the microprocessors automatically correct the feed movement or the knife cutting motion when needed, while microprocessor control of the specimen cylinder gives it a steadier motion during the feed movement, providing the microtome with a greater cutting precision.
  6. Some devices have a wide variety of cutting thickness, and they can actually do the work of two or more rotary histotomes with more limited cutting ranges. A wide range of section thickness is required in laboratories that perform both light and electron microscopy. In addition, laboratories that use both paraffin and plastic as embedding materials can benefit from microtomes that can section both materials over units that section only one or the other.
  7. Interchangeable parts and standard accessories are additional factors that facilities need to consider regarding the rotary histotomes; for example, some accessories are standard items with certain models but are only optional at added cost with other models.
  8. To ensure the effectiveness of the microtome knife guards, they should fit properly and snugly around the knife and should not be easily detached. The flywheel can be locked in place on some rotary histotomes to prevent accidental movement of the specimen block or an operator's fingers adjusting the block into the knife.
  9. A device that can sharpen blades of various materials and shapes is beneficial for histology laboratories that use several rotary histotome blade types for sectioning samples for different procedures or applications.
  10. The operator involvement in microtome knife sharpening was significantly reduced by the use of automated sharpeners. A drawback to sharpener use is the long time it takes the device to sharpen a blade, several hours in time (depending on the blade's composition).
