The DTK Microslicers have a unique design for the vibratory motion of the cutting blade. They are made to cut sections of extremely soft tissues like brain, liver or similar difficult-to-section material. The Microslicers line of instruments are well known for their quality and their superior results, enjoying an excellent reputation in the neuroscience research community.

Objective of the Microslicer
The Microslicer is an instrument used to cut sections of fresh or fixed animal or plant tissues without freezing the tissues.

Fresh tissue sections (10 to 500 micrometers in thickness) are used in anatomy, physiology and pharmacology research areas. In addition, fresh botanical tissue sections are also used in the various research fields.

Histochemistry and cytochemistry procedures require incubation of tissue sections in various reaction media. Large tissue blocks and thick tissue sections often produce non-specific deposits of reaction products and areas of no reaction in the center of the tissues. This is due to the poor penetration of the reaction media into the tissue. The use of thinner tissue sections is required to facilitate the penetration of the reaction medium into the tissues.

DSK Microslicer (DTK-1000, DTK-Zero1 and DTK-3000W) are instruments for cutting non-frozen tissue sections easily and efficiently.

There is a Choice of Three Microslicer Models:

  • Microslicer DTK-1000 - the basic model for manual operation
  • Microslicer DTK-Zero1 - reduced Z-axis movement of the head for superior cutting quality, manual unit but includes motorized specimen movement and features the useful retraction mode
  • Microslicer DTK-3000W - automatic system for serial sectioning and includes the Microslicer Zero Z technology.

The Microslicer vibratory tissue slicer systems feature a constant cutting amplitude and a selectable frequency. The DTK-Zero1, and DTK-3000W models feature the Microslicer Zero-Z technology with a redesigned cutting head for dramatically reduced Z-axis vibration. All systems have a bath with a simple but effective drain. The specimen tray allow for reduced use of solutions and cooling around it. The layout of the switches on either side of the tray allows for easy operation and reduced spillage on the controls.

Applications: Neuroscience Research, Physiology, Immunocytochemistry, Pharmacology, Pathology, Fluorescent Antibody Study, Histology, Cytology

Microslicer DTK-Zero1

New Microslicer DTK-Zero1

The first tissue sectioning equipment with Zero "Z" technology

This model Microslicer with Zero Z technology dramatically reduces the Z-axis vibrations to approximately 2.5 microns. It is also equipped with a specimen retraction system. The specimen advance is manual but the specimen can be moved up or down by a motorized button. A function switch can stop, advance or retract the cutting action, saving valuable time.

Microslicer retraction mechanism
The retraction mechanism is a function included in the DTK-Zero1 and DTK-3000W models that prevents the retracting blade from touching the face of the specimen. The specimen tray is lowered by 120 micrometers after the cutting of each section and is raised by exactly the same distance when a new cutting cycle starts.
