Most of the materials needed to construct a student microtome can be obtained in any hardware store.
Oriented microtome sections were prepared by placing two centimeter cubes of core material in copper cages, dehydrating them in various alcohol solutions, embedding them in paraffin, slicing them with a sliding microtome, and mounting them on slides.
Then the sample was embedded in epoxy resin and polished after curing the epoxy A micro-photograph was taken at 200X magnification with a Leica optical microscope (Laborlux 12 Pol S) equipped with polishing and microtome capabilities.
We found that the microtome (American Optical Co., Buffalo, NY), a thin slice-cutting device used in biological and mineralogical sciences, could be used to produce thin lead slices of reasonably large surface area, approximately 10 [cm.sup.2].
The specific goals of our study were: (a) to quantify interorgan variability in HIC; (b) to quantify total intraorgan variability in HIC; (c) to estimate the components of total intraorgan variability attributable to local variability (measurements within 5 mm of each other) and to remote variability (measurements 3-5 cm apart); (d) to determine whether remote variability is statistically significant; and (e) to quantify the influence of sampling method (biopsy-sized versus microtome sections) on HIC variability.
In this study, a point-of-care protocol for rapid tissue processing and field microtome sectioning was developed and tested using portable lightweight equipment.
Bringing the convenience of on-demand slide printing directly to the microtome, the SlideMate's small footprint (about the size of a toaster) enables it to be integrated at workstations or put on shelves on top of workstations.
[USPRwire, Tue Jan 01 2019] Microtome knife sharpeners are designed for efficient, quick and safe sharpening of microtome knives.
Printing slides on the IPS Slide Printer reduces human error, while sectioning with the RM2255 fully automated microtome improves consistency.
Samples from the core were impregnated with paraffin and used to make oriented microtome sections, which could then be analyzed with a microscope.
