MT990 with CR1000 Rotary Microtome with Cryosectioning System

Ideal tool for cryosectioning polymers, rubbers, and films for optical and FTIR transmission microscopy, as well as cryo-planing sample surfaces for AFM and SEM. Diamond and glass knives can be placed in the rotatable knife holder.


The CR1000 is equipped with independent temperature controls of the knife and specimen.


In conjunction with the CR1000, the MT990 becomes the world’s only cryo microtome for light microscopy, capable of preparing large area rubber, polymer and biological samples
