VT1000 S

The Leica VT1000 S vibrating blade microtome is the instrument of choice for high-quality sectioning requirements in neurophysiology, neuropathology experimental pathology ), Botany (roots and plants) and Industry (foams).      
      
Whether sectioning fixed tissue for specific neuropathology tests or sectioning unfixed native tissue e.g. for patch clamping the Leica VT1000 S consistently provides high-quality sectioning results.

Features

Can alter the frequency      
To quickly accommodate different application needs, a user can alter the frequency between 0 and 100Hz and select the appropriate amplitude between 0.2 to 1mm in 5mm steps.      
      
Adjustable knife advance speed      
The instrument features a very fine adjustable knife advance speed between 0.025 to 2.5mm/s, a programmable sectioning window, and specimen retraction.      
      
Fully automated cut mode      
Accelerate the sectioning process: the Leica VT1000 S features a high-speed knife return stroke of 5 mm/sec as well as a freely programmable sectioning window which ensures extremely quick sectioning of even the smallest specimens.      
      
High quality sectioning      
An adjustable specimen retraction feature protects the specimen from damage during the return stroke of the knife.
