pfm Rotary 3004 M


The pfm Rotary 3004 M is a modern, newly-designed manual rotary microtome for all applications in routine use, research and industry.


Benefits

Excellent section quality  The robust object and knife/blade holders operating in combination with the horizontal and vertical cross-roller bearing system guarantee maximum stability. This unique technology and the quality of the materials used is reflected in the reliable and consistently high sectioning quality. Together with its ergonomic design these features make pfm medical rotary microtomes ideal for situations with a high sample throughput. 

Safe operation  When the object and knife are being mounted a handwheel lock is activated in order to prevent injury. A colour-marked finger guard offers additional safety in the area of the knife/blade edge.

Simple operation  The control panels and display elements are clearly arranged according to their functions. This makes the microtome easy and convenient to operate.

Precise orientation of samples  Samples can be positioned quickly and easily on the X and Y axes using the object orientation system and the colour-marked zero position indicators. Advancing the sample towards the knife/blade edge is therefore very simple.

Suitable for large samples  pfm medical´s rotary microtomes are also suitable for use with large universal cassette clamps and can be converted without difficulty. This means that samples of different sizes can be processed depending on customers´ requirements.

Easy cleaning and care  The surface of the housing is fully anodised and easy to clean. The waste produced during sectioning is caught by the integrated section waste tray and is then easy to discard. The section waste tray is also anodised and easy to clean.
