Cryostat Microtome Equipment Market: Introduction

  • Microtomy is a method that is used for preparation of thin sections for materials such as bones, minerals, and teeth; and an alternative to ion milling and electro polishing. Microtome sections can be made thin enough to section a human hair across its breadth. Cryostat microtome is made for cutting frozen samples. The reduced temperature increases the hardness of the sample.
  • A cryostat microtome, or freezing microtome, is a medical device which is designed for obtaining the cryo-sections of plant and animal tissues into thin sections. Microtome cryostat is used for routine applications in medicine, biology, and industrial applications. Microtome cryostat comprises of a microtome contained within the refrigerated cabinet which is usually operated within the temperature ranging from -5°C to -50°C. Microtome cryostat is composed of an instrument for sectioning the frozen tissue samples, a rotary microtome and blade holder or knife, and a means for freezing the samples. Microtomes can be manual, semi-automatic, and automatic.
