DiATOME histo diamond knives
DiATOME histo diamond knives provide an extra long cutting edge (4.0mm, 6.0mm and 8.0 mm) for the highest possible quality sections for light microscopy in life sciences and material sciences applications. The histo Jumbo with its extra large boat is particularly well suited for serial sectioning and arranging sections before pick up. DiATOME histo knives are designed for the sectioning of hard and soft specimens - non-embedded or embedded in acrylic or epoxy resins. DiATOME histo knives can be used on all ultramicrotomes as well as on histology microtomes with retraction of the specimen arm on the upward return stroke. DiATOME histo knives are also available in histo cryo versions for wet and dry sectioning at low temperatures.
histo for semi thin sectioning at ambient temperature
histo Jumbo for serial semi thin sectioning at ambient temperature
histo cryo wet for semi thin sectioning onto a suitable liquid at low temperature
histo cryo dry for semi thin sectioning at low temperature without liquid
