The 7000smz-2 unit with a Z-axis deflection of Sub-Micron and a blade advance controllable to 10 microns/second. The 5100mz-Plus and 5100mz are very competitively priced high precision units with a Z-axis deflection of only 1-2 microns and a blade advance controllable to 10 microns/sec. On all units the section thickness step size is 0.001mm. The 7000smz-2 is supplied with their own Z-axis calibration verifier.
All types of sectioning is possible including sectioning for visual patching of neurological tissue, heart, and lung, and much more…
The effect of excessive Z-axis deflection on the health and viability of the tissue preparation has been much discussed since the publication of Jonas et al (2003) and the 7000smz-2 will now deliver perfect sections every time with sub-micron Z-axis deflection across a wide range of vibration speeds and amplitudes.
The all-new user interface is both easy to use and versatile. The 7000smz-2 and both 5100mz models offer similar operation at the press of a button. The versatility includes simple operation at the push of a button or a range of changeable and programmable parameters and a menu enables the settings of your own preferences.
The 7000smz-2 also gives you longevity of performance; in other words it not only gives submicron performance out-of-the-box, but the advance vibrating mechanism does not contain bearings and other components subject to wear. Consequently it will retain the sub-micron Z-axis deflection performance for years to come, giving you consistency in your biological preparation.
Tissue cooling is accomplished by the use of either an ice-water bath or an electronically comtrolled thermo-electric cooler. Other options include a LED cold light source and a magnifier or a stereoscope for clear observation whilst slicing.
