Rotary Microtome RMT-20

Rotary Microtome RMT-20


RADICAL Rotary Microtome Model RMT-20 is a highly versatile sectioning device suitable for Medical Institutions, Research & Pathological Laboratories. This microtome has special application for cutting thin sections of histopathological specimens and also caters to the demands of industries such as Plastic, Leather, Textiles, Rubber & Fertilizer. It is ideal for those who want to avail advantages of a Rotary Microtome at a moderate cost.

The entire mechanism stands on a heavy cast iron base ensuring stability and rigidity. Its compound slide ways of critical tolerances guide the specimen block. The metal hinged cover housing protects the internal mechanism against dust and paraffin waste, it can be conveniently opened for resetting, cleaning and lubricating. The Microtome is driven by a handle which can also be locked. Cutting sections are obtained in different thickness by mechanically operated crank through a knurled knob in front of the instrument. The knurled knob is graduated in microns for feed setting and ready reference. A detent click action ensures positive adjustments in one micron increment.
The knife holder unit is equipped with a rotating knife clamp to adjust desired angles for best sectioning. It has forward and backward movements to ensure contact of specimen with the knife and lateral movement to get maximum use of knife edge. Smooth & accurate specimen movement is achieved with the time proven operating principles of the feed mechanism. Travel is entirely independent to the vertical movement of the specimen block. When the feed limit reaches to an end point, it disengages itself. To bring the feed screw back, the vice is pressed slightly and the main gear wheel is turned clockwise till the screw reaches its starting position. All parts are fabricated from selected alloys and the Microtome knife is manufactured from fine grain steel tested to maintain optimum sharpness strength

Feed adjustments 1-25 Ám Overall Dimensions 30 x 33 x 28 cms
Minimum thickness 1 µm Net Weight 25 Kgs. approx.

Senior Precision Rotary Microtome RMT-30


RADICAL Senior Precision Rotary Microtome Model RMT - 30 is the most precise and uniform sectioning equipment for use in Medical Colleges, Universities, Research Laboratories, Hospitals and Educational Institutions.
The internal mechanism and knife holder rests on a heavy-duty and rigid base to render a shake proof operation. The Protective aluminium cover is hinged to the base and swings back so that the interior parts are completely exposed for convenient setting, cleaning, lubrication etc. Feed mechanism is dependent upon the vertical movement of the object block. With every complete revolution of the counter balanced drive wheel, the feed pawl engages with the teeth of the ratchet gear which moves towards and advances the object holder through a cone inclined plane mechanism in precise increments so that the tissues can be sectioned even to a thickness of one micron. When the limit of the feed reaches at the end, a safety device automatically disengages the feed mechanism to prevent jamming and avoid damage to the feed screws.
The feed indicator is graduated in microns, is conveniently located in the front for instant references and its setting is controlled by a knurled knob at the back of the microtome. The sturdy knife holder, in addition to knife elevating and leveling provides lateral movement for complete use of knife edge. The angle, adjustable up to 30o, is indicated on a reference scale. The knife supplied with the Microtome is fabricated from high carbon fine grain tool steel which is heat-treated for proper temper & tested for Micro structures.
A lever is provided to lock counter balanced drive wheel and specimen block is stopped at the top of its excursion, providing ample clearance space for safety insert and removal of knife and block holders. A quick flip of the lever releases the drive wheel.

Feed adjustments 1-50 µm Overall Dimensions 1 µm
