Introducing the Leica HistoCore BIOCUT Manual Microtome: Elevate Your Microtomy Experience

Do you desire high speed AND comfort in your manual microtomy? If so, the HistoCore BIOCUT could be the perfect solution for you. The new generation of microtomes from Leica Biosystems is built upon our 145+ year heritage of market-leading microtome design. With new options such as the personalized coarse feed wheel and 2-in-1 blade holder, it ranks among the most ergonomically-friendly microtomes on the market.

Ergonomic Excellence with the Personalized Coarse Feed Wheel

One of the standout features of the Leica HistoCore BIOCUT is its Personalized Coarse Feed Wheel. This innovative addition allows you to quickly and efficiently select the turn direction most comfortable for you. Say goodbye to the one-size-fits-all approach, and welcome a microtome that adapts to your preferences. This personalization ensures that manual microtomy has never felt so good, making your work more efficient and comfortable.

Antistatic Waste Tray for a Clean and Efficient Workspace

A clean workspace is crucial for efficient histology work. With the Antistatic Waste Tray included in the BIOCUT, you can maintain a tidy and debris-free environment effortlessly. Crafted from antistatic material, this tray prevents paraffin waste from sticking to the walls, saving you valuable time on cleaning. Now, minutes of cleaning are reduced to mere seconds, allowing you to focus on what truly matters—your research and analysis.

Efficiency Enhanced with the 2-in-1 Blade Holder

The Leica HistoCore BIOCUT goes a step further in enhancing your efficiency with its 2-in-1 Blade Holder. Switching between high and low-profile blades has never been easier, thanks to this innovative design. What’s more, you can make this transition without the need to change blade holders, simplifying your workflow. This modular blade holder design also enables you to maintain individual components, ensuring that your equipment remains in top-notch condition and allowing for efficient servicing over time.

Precision-Orientation System for Consistency

Consistency is key in histology, and the Precision-Orientation System in the BIOCUT ensures just that. Regardless of how you or another technician have changed the instrument’s orientation, you can always return to a 0-position home on the microtome. This feature eliminates guesswork and ensures that your sections are consistently precise, time after time.

Silent Retraction for Uninterrupted Concentration

In quiet working environments, concentration is paramount. The Leica HistoCore BIOCUT understands this need and is your ideal sectioning partner. It operates with minimal noise during retraction, allowing you to work in peace without distractions. Whether you’re in a research lab or a clinical setting, the BIOCUT’s silent retraction ensures your focus remains undisturbed.

In conclusion, the Leica HistoCore BIOCUT Manual Microtome offers a holistic solution for manual microtomy. With its focus on ergonomics, cleanliness, efficiency, precision, and quiet operation, it’s the perfect companion for histology professionals who demand the best. Elevate your microtomy experience and unlock new levels of comfort and productivity with the Leica HistoCore BIOCUT.
