Accu-Cut® SRM™ 300 LT Manual Microtome

Enlightening the block

Meet the new shining star of manual microtomy, the Accu-Cut SRM 300 LT!

The Accu-Cut® SRM 300 LT Manual Microtome is the first and only manual microtome with a patented multi-colored LED backlit chuck to illuminate paraffin embedded tissue samples making them much easier to see and safer to section.

The backlight increases contrast between specimens and paraffin so users can see exactly where the tissue is located to prevent cutting through a small biopsy or previously sectioned block.

The Accu-Cut SRM 300 LT features a 3D Precision Chuck for accurate alignment of the block face to the blade on all three axes (XYZ), which is crucial for recuts. The sturdy chuck retains its position when locked and unlocked, eliminating any time and effort spent realigning the cutting angle. The 3D Precision Chuck can quickly and accurately be returned to a zero position with the dial indicators.

The compact and ergonomic design helps to minimize cumulative stress on the user and increases both efficiency and productivity. The course hand wheel is optimally sized and positioned for comfortable trimming in either clockwise or counterclockwise rotation and is switchable by the user.

The Accu-Cut SRM 300 LT includes many exclusive features that reduce the risk of accidental injuries associated with blade exposure:

  • The first and only Brake Lock Indicator that displays that the chuck is locked and will not move while the user interacts with the microtome, providing users with peace-of-mind.
  • The Red Blade Guard can be set in the UP position to protect the user from accidental exposure to the blade edge while sectioning.
  • A Universal Blade Holder base, featuring lateral displacement, allows operators to use the full length of the microtome blade without releasing the blade clamping mechanism or direct blade manipulation.
  • The Accu-Cut SRM 300 LT is the first and only microtome to offer a space-saving Tool Organizer giving back precious bench space.

Compatible with Accu-Edge® Disposable Blades, the Accu-Cut SRM 300 LT ensures superior sectioning in the precise art of cutting quality tissue samples section after section, time after time.

Autosection

 

Tissue-Tek AutoSection® delivers the next level in precision sectioning.

Tissue-Tek AutoSection® provides one-touch trimming and programmable sectioning with a host of built-in safety features. Tissue-Tek AutoSection® automatically orients the block to the blade edge, using patented sensing and automated  3-D specimen holder technology for precise XYZ orientation. It standardizes block orientation—even if the block was trimmed or sectioned on a different microtome—saving valuable tissue and technician time. With AutoTrim™, the Tissue-Tek AutoSection® trims blocks automatically in just seconds with one-touch operation. This tissue-preserving feature is optimized for Tissue-Tek® Paraform® Cassettes, although it also accommodates most common cassettes.

Multiple built-in safeguards make Tissue-Tek AutoSection® the leader in microtome user safety. One-touch trimming and sectioning eliminate repetitive hand wheel motions and reduce the risk of musculoskeletal disorders, while the sliding dispenser feature of Accu-Edge® blades eliminates direct handling of blades.

Compared to manual and motorized microtomes the AutoSection showed the highest precision in section thickness using IHC staining and digital imaging technology.   Programmable sectioning, it enables laboratories to implement standardized protocols for specific tissue or block types.
