Leica RM2145 Microtome

The Leica RM2145 microtome is a semi-motorized rotary microtome for use in histology, histopathology and industrial quality assurance applications. It is especially designed for parafin specimens in routine and research applications.

This ergonomic microtome uses a traditional handwheel for manual sectioning. The Ergomode (a specially designed rocking mode) and a separate ergonomic control panel ensure maximum user comfort. The Leica RM2145 microtome also features a motorized precision feed utilizing a step motor operated micrometer feed system. Automated coarse specimen advance is available in three trimming increments and can also be performed manually.

A newly designed step motor operated micrometer feed system ensures precise advance by the selected section thickness. This precision feed of the Leica RM2145 microtome guarantees consistent section thickness and high reproducible section quality.
