Tissue Slicers

The DSK Line-Up of Vibrating Blade Tissue Slicers

Neo-Linear Slicers (NLS) are the next-generation models of slicing machines available since 2014. Linear Slicers (LS) have been in production since 2001, and the Micro Slicer (MS) has been around for more than 30 years. NLS are the most advanced models of LS compared to the least advanced MS models, although the basic mechanism is almost the same. They each offer varying degrees of performance versus cost-effectiveness.

The difference between NLS, LS and MS is in the horizontal swing mechanism, while MS is swinging sideways from the DC motor via cam. NLS and LS are transversely swung with electromagnets (linear motor type).

Although it is impossible to suppress the vertical swing which would inevitably create a bad vibration with the mechanism of the motor and the cam, the linear motor with only the linear motion (horizontal swing) theoretically, even if various conditions such as the resonance of the chassis and the cover were put in, reduces the longitudinal shake to approximately 1 µm (2 µm even at maximum swing).

Vertical swing = poor vibration = death of nerve cell

Performance

In the NLS series, a vibration suppression table is built in, shrinking the vertical swing further, thus becoming soft. In test demonstrations, we received positive feedback including: "Synapse's response (liveliness) is good," and "Even those who are unfamiliar are able to cut cleanly, " and "Good condition is obtained".

Improving on the original success of the MS series with it's higher basic performance than competitors' comparable products, the LS series is the next highest model in the lineup. the DC motor will degrade as much as you use it by nature and the torque will decrease. Depending on the frequency of use, the motor may show signs of wear in three years. On the electromagnet, there is no such degradation, however it is best to adjust it once every few years.

Although NLS and LS models demonstrate the best performance in raw samples, it is due to the difference in the lateral swing mechanism described above that the fixed specimen can be cleared more than MS. It is the LS series that can cut thinner more beautifully, and the NLS series is even better.

Features

The most cost-effective model, the Micro Slicer Model DTK-1000N is an entry-level model of our slicer series, It features manual operation of the elevating mechanism which controls section thickness. Instead of increasing the labor of turning the dial around the dial when making slices, the price is kept low. The ice bath has become detachable and easy to use. In addition, the magnifying glass has become an option.

The Micro Slicer Model ZERO 1 N is the next best model, where the stepping motor is mounted on the elevating mechanism of the specimen part, making it more convenient to use. When retracting the blade with retraction function, it is also beneficial to mount the stepper motor to lower the sample by about 100 µm so that the blade and the sample do not come in contact with each other. This too features a detachable ice bath and optional magnifying glass.

Linear Slicer Model PRO 7N with a horizontal electromagnet swinging mechanism raises the basic performance of MS linear slicers. This semi-automated machine with retraction function is similar to Micro Slicer ZERO 1 N's operability. The ice bath has become detachable and easy to use.

Neo-Linear Slicer MT is Linear Slicer PRO 7N's successor. Built-in vibration suppression table reduces longitudinal runout. The sharpness has improved further, and the semi-automatic machine that inherited simple and easy operability of PRO7 features a blade holder and ice bath that are removable and easy to clean. The blade holder also supports sterilization, and customization of the incident angle is also available as an option. Model AT feature all the benefits of the MT as well as automatic programming controls and a vibration suppression table.
