Tissue Choppers Manual Digital
The Manual Tissue Chopper with Digital Micrometer Advance advances straight down into the tissue and exerts no lateral pressure on the tissue. Even retinal tissue and nerve bundles will not skitter sideways. The Micrometer Advance sets section thickness, which may be cut as thin as 140 microns and can be positioned for left or right-handed operation.
The instrument is built with rigid supports so that a quick hand chop can produce reproducible sections. A rigid preset stop will halt the blade descent at the acrylic surface. One person should be near the instrument in operation, and the operator's hand which is not cutting should be kept away from the blade or acrylic surface.
Straight Down Cut
Blade does not contact tissue at an angle, pushing it sideways, but straight down.
