Sakura Tissue-Tek AutoSection® Automated Microtome
Built on the success and principles of SMART Automation, the Total Laboratory Automation of the Sakura Tissue-Tek AutoSection® Automated Microtome delivers cutting edge technology to address today’s challenges of quality, efficiency and speed.
Quality & Patient Safety
Precision sectioning and consistent high quality, is now achievable for every technician, every single block and tissue type using the Sakura Tissue-Tek AutoSection® Automated Microtome. This unique microtome automatically aligns, trims and sections your blocks, including Tissue-Tek Paraform. This cutting edge technology enables thin, consistent, high quality sections. AutoAlign™ technology will precisely orient blocks and dramatically reduce the risk of losing tissue. Another major benefit of automation and stress free microtomy is the reduction of repetitive motion and the increase of staff satisfaction.
Efficiency & Speed
With the Sakura Tissue-Tek AutoSection® Automated microtome you can work in a single-piece-flow and increase productivity, by only one touch of a button and scan of a cassette. With AutoTrim™, the core technology of Sakura Tissue-Tek AutoSection® Automated microtome, blocks are ready for sectioning within seconds, saving valuable production time, in particular with recuts.
