Fully automated vibrating blade microtome

The fully automated Leica VT1200 S vibrating blade microtome is designed for sectioning fresh specimens in neuroscience. Automatic feeding, specimen retraction and the use of a cutting window help to minimize sectioning time. The instrument is recommended for multi-user laboratories where both the semi-automated and fully automated functions are needed.

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.
