Semi-Automated Rotary Microtome M-240

for paraffin-embedded tissue sectioning

The Microtome M-240 is a last generation semi-automated rotary microtome that produces consistent high-quality sectioning. Versatile, user-friendly thanks to its 7” touchscreen, it is designed for routine, research, and industrial applications.




  • User interface available in a full-color TFT 7” display with PCAD (projected capacitive) touchscreen. The size of the display together with its tilted position allows an easy and effortless selection of the parameters and increases user safety. The integrated ergonomic armrest at the back of the display improves user comfort and productivity.
  • Button Memory function (MEM) for the retrieval of previous cutting settings.
  • Equipped with a specimen orientation head that works with different specimen clamp types and an easy-to-operate change system thanks to the locking mechanism.
  • Indication of 0-position in x and y direction by clear “click” for the precise position of the specimen.
  • Cutting-edge design of the specimen clamp that prevents the building up of dirt and facilitates operations with the microtome.
  • Automatic fixation of the knife carrier to the microtome base (patent pending).
  • Removable lever for locking the clearance angle of the blade holder. Design without levers for improved cleanliness and ease of use.
  • Blade holder can be moved sideways both to the right and the left for optimal use of the cutting edge.
