Microm HM315 Rotary Microtome

The Microm HM315 Rotary Microtome is specifically designed for routine sectioning of paraffin-embedded specimens. The HM315  is a highly efficient instrument for all paraffin techniques in routiine and researh laboratories as well as less sophisticated sectioning techniques in industrial laboratories.

Forward and backward travel is carried out by the coarse feed wheel. This way the specimen and knife edge distance can be adjusted quickly.

The maintenance-free cross-roller bearings of the Microm HM315 Rotary Microtome allow smooth vertical specimen movement. The user can preselect the section thickness, then push the quick trim lever and turn the handwheel to automatically trim the specimen by 10 or 30µm. The handwheel, which can be locked in any position, guides the specimen accurately across the stationary knife.

The Microm HM315 Rotary Microtome accepts universal cassettes when equipped with a quick-release clamp or tissue blocks up to 50 x 55mm with a standard object clamp.

The Microm HM315 Rotary Microtome has a precision microfeed system with section thickness fully adjustable from 0.5 to 60µm and a full-feed range of up to 28mm.

It is made of durable monoblock construction to provide excellent stability.

All knife holders fit directly onto the horizontal dove-tail guideway.
