1. Temperature controlled standard tissue bath cooler - Model 7610-A 

Product Description

The 7610-A tissue bath cooler Unit is intended for use with our 7000 and 5100 range of vibrating microtomes. Unfixed brain slices sectioned at 4°C give better tissue preservation and are viable for longer in-vitro recordings. Additionally, some enzyme histochemical techniques give better staining results when sectioned at low temperatures.

Tissue Bath Mount - Model 7610-A

The 7610 Series coolers use "Peltier" thermoelectric elements. The stainless steel tissue bath and mount are detachable to allow sterilization by autoclave if required. Tissue Bath Mount Tissue Bath Mount

The equipment comprises of a mains operated control unit, cooling element, tissue bath and specimen holder. The control unit houses a power supply and temperature control circuitry. The cooling element assembly consists of thermoelectric "Peltier" elements, temperature feedback sensors and a cold water fed heat exchanger. 

Current from the power supply flows through the thermoelectric elements, which act as heat transfer units. Heat is drawn off, cooling the solution in the tissue bath. The heat generated by this process is removed by the water supply fed through the heat exchanger. The unit uses a proportional temperature control algorithm to maintain temperature stability. This will hold the bath temperature to within 0.5°C of the temperature set point. There will, however, be a small variation in temperature vertically through the bath. Experience will show the best temperature to be set for any given requirement and ambient temperature.

Product Specifications

Display Resolution: 0.1°C
Temperature Accuracy: +/- .5°C
*Temperature Range: +8°C to 0°C
Voltage Requirements: 230V 50Hz or 115V 60Hz
Power Rating: 60W
Inlet Fuse Rating: 2A

*Note that the actual temperatures achievable will be dependent upon the solutions used and local temperature conditions.


2. Integrally Mounted Cold Light Source -  Model 7000-2-1

Product Description

To facilitate the careful slicing operation, it is most important that the progress of the blade through the tissue be clearly observed. This observation is used to ensure control of the speed of advance and of the oscillation of the blade. Two elements are required for clear observation, light and magnification.

Integrally Mounted Cold Light Source

Model 7000-2-1

Product Features

  • Ability to direct the light where needed with two flexible fiber optic light guides
  • Maintains temperature stability of the tissue or surrounding a.c.s.f.
  • Light Intensity is adjustable by a rotary dial knob
  • 20W/12V Halogen lamp
  • 2000 hour life approx
  • Fan and electronic power supply
  • Adjustable with potentiometer
  • Twin 500mm fiber optic light guides

3. Integrally Mounted Magnifying Glass - Model 7000-1-3

Product Description

For general global slices a magnifying glass offering approx 2x magnification is sufficient. However, if specific loci are under study then an inspection microscope is desirable. The binocular inspection microscope with 10x-40x magnification, a zoom of 1x-4x and a working distance of 80mm is ideal for the task.

1. Ceramic Blades - Model 7550-1-C

Product Description

The new blade holder design is now included with all Integraslice and Vibroslice instruments. 7550-1-C and 7550-1-SS are designed for new Integraslice instruments.

Product Features

  • Made from ultra hard zirconium
  • Honed by a process of "lapping" both sides of the single bevel to micron flatness
  • Great rigidity, hence a straight cutting edge
  • Prolonged slice life, especially in the most difficult of tissues such as young brain or very old brain
  • Inert and impervious to corrosion
  • Initial higher cost is offset by its longevity
  • Fits into a special blade holder now standard on both Integraslice and Vibroslice instruments

2. Stainless Steel Blades - Model 7550-1-SS

Product Features

  • Double beveled on both faces, honed to an acute cutting edge and hardened to 56 Rockwell.
  • Nevertheless, stainless steel is relatively soft and these blades are usually used once or at a maximum changed every day.
  • These blades are for use in specially designed blade holders for Vibroslice instruments manufactured prior to 2003.
