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 (Projective Capacitive Technology) 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.
  • The knife carrier can be moved sideways both to the right and the left for optimal use of the cutting edge.
  • The standard knife carrier can be used for both low profile and high profile disposable blades.
