Leica VT1200 S Materials Testing

Leica VT1200 S Fully automated vibrating blade microtome

The fully automated Leica VT1200 S vibrating blade microtome is designed to meet the highest sectioning demands for cutting fresh and fixed tissue in Neuroscience.

To achieve sections of the highest quality that retain viable cells on the section surface, the vertical deflection of the blade can be measured by Leica’s Vibrocheck™ measurement device and minimised with the innovative blade holder.

The instrument was designed in collaboration with Prof. Dr. Peter Jonas and his group at the Physiology Department, Freiburg Germany.

Protects delicate specimens

Minimal vertical deflection protects delicate specimens during sectioning and results in more viable cells on the section surface.

Unique sectioning preferences

Semi and fully automated cutting modes accommodate many user’s unique sectioning preferences.

Double edged razor injector

Blade holder for double edged razor, injector or sapphire blades supports safer blade handling. A second blade holder helps to avoid contamination of specimens.

Built-in software

Built-in software remembers individual operational parameter settings for up to 8 users.

Magnetic specimen holders

Magnetic specimen holders support easy specimen handling and reproducible orientation.
