CAMPDEN VIBRATING MICROTOMES

Studies of visual patching and extracellular recording of neurological, heart and lung tissue using Campden's vibrating microtomes have all been published for over 30 years. The latest generation with Model 7000smz-2 and the 5100mz Series represent significant advances in precision at a lower cost than competitive units. In addition, they are easy to use providing service free operation and performance longevity.

Bath Mount for Vibrating Microtomes

Bath Mount for Vibrating Microtomes
Model 7000-3-1A

Newly redesigned Bath Mount. Edge of the ice bath outer now has a rolled edge. Preventing vibration of the bath wall at certain harmonics of speed and amplitude, hence more stable, less splash, less evident vibration.
