Semi-Automatic Vibrating Blade Microtome

The semi-automatic Leica VT1200 vibrating blade microtome is designed for sectioning fresh specimens in neuropathology (fresh brain slicing), neurophysiology (patch-clamping), and electrophysiology.

The instrument is recommended for users who prefer to control sectioning parameters such as section thickness and cutting stroke manually for each individual section. To achieve sections that retain viable cells on the section surface, the vertical deflection of the blade can be measured with the Leica Vibrocheck measurement device and minimized with the innovative blade holder.

The instrument was designed in collaboration with Prof. Dr. Peter Jonas (previously at the Physiology department of the University of Freiburg, Germany, now at Institute of Science and Technology, Klosterneuburg, Austria) and his former group.
