The 7000smz-2 unit with a Z-axis deflection of Sub-Micron has 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 0.001 mm. The 7000smz-2 and 5100mz-Plus are supplied with their own Z-axis calibration verifier.

All types of sectioning are 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 affordable 5100mz-Plus offers almost the same features with Z-axis deflection of 1-2 microns at all vibration speeds and amplitudes, which is less than most other microtomes on the market.

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 controlled thermo-electric cooler. Other options include a LED cold light source and a magnifier or a stereoscope for clear observation whilst slicing.

The new 5100mz series Vibrating Microtomes share the user interface with the premium 7000smz-2, placing a wide range of adjustable parameters at the user's fingertips. Use in fully manual or the semi-automated "slice window" mode which automatically remembers the start and finish position of the slice.

 

5100mz-Plus

The 5100-Plus is perfect for those who need to keep slices viable for longer, e.g. for electrophysiological field recordings. The user can calibrate the Z-axis deflection of the blade to 2 ┬Ám with the adjustable blade holder and "optical" calibration device. Minimal Z-axis deflection reduces the "chatter" and minimizes damage to the slice surface, leading to greater viability of the cells on the slice surface.
