Tips for buying Microtome Knife Sharpener

  1. Busy laboratories, in which technologist time is at a premium, can take advantage of sharpening services through the mail, which is offered by some suppliers.
  2. A microtome knife sharpener device that can sharpen blades of various materials and shapes is extremely beneficial in histology laboratories that use several blade types for sectioning samples for different procedures or applications.
  3. Automated microtome knife sharpeners have significantly decreased the amount of operator involvement in knife sharpening. However, it takes a long time for the device to sharpen a blade. Sharpening may even take several hours, depending on the blade's composition.
  4. Using a microtome knife sharpener requires the facility to keep a reserve of knives in stock and monitor their sharpness, as well as to maintain and service the microtome knife sharpener.
  5. The long-term replacement costs of disposable microtome blades can be high.        Therefore, a versatile, low-maintenance microtome knife sharpener may be more cost-effective.
