Sectioning: Microtome Blades, Holders, and Supplies
Stainless Steel, Disposable Microtome Blade Holders which fit most microtomes and cryostats. If you are looking for a system that combines the quality cutting characteristics of reusable blades with the convenience and consistency of disposable ones our blade holders are your answer.
Our blade holders are:
Versatile - The holders are designed to readily accommodate blades of differing thickness. Such adaptability allows the histologist maximum flexibility especially when difficult tissues are encountered.
Durable - Because we use the highest quality stainless steel and the most advanced manufacturing processes, these blade holders are less susceptible to nicks and normal wear and tear.
Convenient - Insert, clamp, adjust the angle, and cut. That's all it takes.
Universal - For the first time, the quality and convenience of disposable blades are available for all rotary microtomes and cryostats - Even the popular Miles Tissue Tek(TM) (adapter required).

The quality of sectioning depends on the quality of the blade being used. With sharp durable edges, our blades represent a new standard in sectioning quality.
Our blades are available in three different types:
Standard Blade: For routine tissue samples, the standard blade offers an unsurpassed level of quality at an affordable price.
Premium Blade: When more difficult specimens are encountered, simply switch to our premium type- a heavy duty blade which allows you to achieve ribbons of unsurpassed quality.
The Edge: Years of research went into choosing the optimum stainless steel and edge combination. Repeated testing was performed by histologists to assure that SHUR/SHARP blades represent the ultimate in consistency for sectioning technology. Chatterless and compression free ribbons will become routine no matter what the tissue is.

Tissue Microarray System: Building Superior Results.
The Tissue Microarray are a collection of multiple tissue cores that are arranged in an XY fashion inside of a paraffin block allowing for histological analysis.
The Tissue-Tek® Quick-Ray™ technique produces superior quality TMAs in less time than with traditional methods, and accomplishes finished products at a fraction of the cost. The Tissue-Tek® Quick-Ray™ uses a hollowed tip to remove tissue cores as small as 1 mm from paraffin-embedded tissue (donor block). The extracted tissue is then inserted into a preformed recipient block–the Quick-Ray™ System is the only system available that uses a preformed paraffin recipient block.
The finished block is sectioned using a microtome; the sections are mounted on glass slides and then stained. Each TMA block can be cut into 300-400 sections at 4-5µ, which can then be subjected to independent tests. Common tests include immunohistochemistry and fluorescent in situ hybridization.
Compact design and versatility make building a Tissue-Tek® Quick-Ray™ TMA astoundingly simple. The construction of a TMA block can be done on any clean counter, and does not require a dedicated space.
The Quick-Ray system is the only system available that uses a preformed paraffin receipent block. There is no other system or instrument that provides a ready to use paraffin recipient block. The finished block is then sectioned using a microtome; the sections are mounted on glass slides and then stained. Each TMA Block can be cut into 300-400 sections at 3-4 microns.
- Ready-to-use paraffin recipient block
- Compact design and versatility
- No dedicated space required for TMA block formation
The Tissue-Tek® Quick-Ray™ Tissue Microarray System consists of:
- One puncher
- Four paraffin recipient blocks (1 mm, 2 mm, 3 mm, and 5 mm)
- One basemold
- Four punch tips (1 mm, 2 mm, 3 mm, and 5 mm)
- One 1-mm punch guide
