Details

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 µm with the adjustable blade holder and “Opti-cal” Calibration device. Minimal Z-axis deflection reduces the “chatter” and minimises damage to the slice surface, leading to greater viability of the cells on the slice surface.

The New 5100mz series Vibrating Microtome shares the User interface with the premium 7000smz-2, placing a wide range of adjustable parameters at the user’s fingertips:

  • Vibration frequency from 50 to 80 Hz
  • Adjustable amplitude from 0.5mm to 1.5mm
  • Fine control of the blade advance (min. 0.1 mm/sec)
  • Set start and stop position of blade travel
  • Control box on umbilical cord ideal for operation in an isolated environment

Use in fully manual or the semi-automated "Slice window" mode which automatically remembers the start and finish position of the slice.
