EM Sample Preparation Ultramicrotomy
Whether tissue sample, microchip or nanoparticle, Leica ultramicrotomes provide extremely thin sections and perfect surface quality in a wide range of applications.
From materials science to cancer research, our ultramicrotomes are used for many different kinds of research and quality control all over the world.
Leica ultramicrotomes guarantee precision and comfort. Thanks to the fully motorized knife stages and a wealth of technical features, even beginners can prepare perfect sections. The instruments produce section thicknesses between 20 nm and 2.5 µm at temperatures down to -185°C.
Special built-in damping systems prevent ambient vibrations affecting the section quality.
Our high-end instruments also have stereomicroscopes that can be moved eucentrically around the sample to ensure excellent imaging at all times.
As the user often operates an ultramicrotome for a long period of time, fatigue-free operation is a must for both right and left handed users. The ultramicrotome can also be adapted to the height of the user.
Ergonomic arm rests and generous adjustment options make work with ultramicrotomes from Leica Microsystems fatigue-free.
