Microm HM 355 S Microtome
- EQUIPMENT DESCRIPTION
The Thermo Scientific Microm HM 355S is an easy to operate and easy to clean, responsive heavy duty rotary microtome. Using four modes of operation, interval, single, multi and continuous stroke the Microm HM 355S Microtome also offers a built in armrest and flexibility of configuration for left or right handed users. It features a generous waste tray, for the collection of section waste. This high functioning microtome can accommodate all specimen clamps within Thermo Scientific Microm product range and knife carriers of the rotary microtome HM 300 series. Clamps can be rotated 360 degrees.
The Microm HM 355S is particularly useful for biological, medicinal and industrial applications, and is designed for efficient sectioning of paraffin and hard specimens. A motorized coarse feed system can handle continuous and graduated specimens, has three different speed settings, and allows forward and backward travel. The Microm HM 355S is specifically designed sliding microtome for single handed sectioning and adjustments without losing speed or safety. The model also has easy adjustment of specimen and knife edge distances. Uniform cutting speed and adjustments to section force variations is achieved through a electronically controlled motor drive with a precision tachogenerator. A conveyor belt automatically transfers the section into a water bath with a continuous water flow. This transfer results in more useable sections and uses less material. The Microm HM 355S microtome features emergency stop devices, including an electromechanical hand wheel handle and hand wheel break.
