MT990 Rotary Microtome

For automated sectioning, the MT990 rotary microtome features a motorized, programmable, automatic trim providing a reproducible, consistent cutting speed. With an accelerated return stroke and adjustable cutting zone, the MT990 effortlessly cuts paraffin, plastic, and hard specimens.


The advantages of the motor drive can also be used to reduce the strain of repetitive, high output histology sectioning. Included with a separate controller for hands-off operation of the motorized cutting stroke, the MT990 may also be used manually.
