Sliding Microtome Model RMT - 45 is a standard sectioning instrument especially designed for Research Laboratories for cutting sections of paraffin as well as celloiden embedded specimens. Sliding Microtome is having the advantage of vertical object feed by Micrometer Screw and Cylinder so rigidly held that perfect immobility under the knife is ensured, even when cutting relatively large, hard and in homogeneous specimens.
The heavy knife block mounted on slideways can be actuated entirely by hand. The Microtome comprises of a stable heavy cast base stand on a precise sliding track over which slides a sturdy knife holder. Its smooth and efficient operation has a great advantage of vertical object feed. The object holder has rapid vertical adjustment by means of a lever mechanism. Placed below the object holder is a drip pan for excess alcohol or water.
Its knife holder rigidly supports a 120mm knife made from imported fine grain hard tool steel, which ensures accurate sectioning not only of soft tissues but also harder materials such as stem, root and other objects etc. Sliding Microtome is recommended to the labs where sections of fairly large specimens are required.
