Sakura Finetek introduces the world’s first automated and programmable microtome

Building on the success and principles of SMART Automation, Sakura Finetek proudly introduces the next step in Total Laboratory Automation: Tissue-Tek® AutoSection® Automated Microtome, advancing histopathology laboratories and improving patient care.

The first of its kind, this fully-automated and programmable microtome aligns and trims blocks with optimal precision, section after section. AutoAlign™, the core technology behind AutoSection®, precisely orients blocks and dramatically reduces the risk of losing tissue; revolutionary for re-cuts. In addition, with AutoTrim™ technology, blocks are ready for sectioning in seconds. Another major benefit of automation and stress free microtomy is the reduction of repetitive motion and the increase of staff satisfaction.

AutoSection® sets the standard ensuring:

  • Consistent high-quality sectioning
  • Preservation of valuable tissue
  • Improved productivity
  • Minimal repetitive motions
