Shandon Finesse ME Plus Microtome
- EQUIPMENT DESCRIPTION
The Thermo Shandon Finesse ME+ Microtome is a fully automated system designed to meet the demand of today’s histology labs. The fully automated pathology instrument is ergonomically designed to make tasks more comfortable. The system comes complete with a new efficient blade holder which will increase the quality of sectioning along with productivity. This reliable instrument works well with routine wax sections, specialized resin projects, high-quality tissue sectioning while staying low cost to maintain. This thermo microtome has it all including a selectable retraction feature along with toggling between Trim and Section settings. Moreover, the Autoload option allows you to reset specimen head into the ready position allowing for rapid turnaround time when changing blocks needed for high throughput projects. Once the sectioning and trimming is done, the user touches the autoload button to move the head back into the unload position allowing the end-user to safely change out blocks.
The LCD display monitor includes readouts for speed, section count, section thickness, and advanced distance. navigation and operation is simple through the arrow keys that control the rewind and advancement of the specimen. Included are safety features such as an emergency stop which will cut the power to the motor immediately upon pushing stop. There are three cutting modes for continuous cutting along with eleven languages to choose from for viewing commands. The balanced flywheel gives precision response for free running and standby keys that let the instrument go to sleep mode when it's not being used, saving parameters of the last run in its internal memory bank.
The microtome also comes with a key specimen advanced component which brings a custom shaft design that will stabilize the specimen holder during its full extension. The specimens are backlit with a cool green tone which will assist with aligning of the specimen with the knife. Finding the correct knife angle can also be challenging on older microtome models, but with the Finesse ME+ once you find the angle you wish to use, quickly lock it into place and that’s it. You can evening remove the blade holder for cleaning and put it back into place on the same angle without adjustments needing to be done. Controls also include a coarse advance wheel along with brake and cutting action selection allowing you to brake at any position on the wheel.
