Erma Microtome is a versatile sectioningdevice suitable for medical institutions, research & pathologicallaboratories. This microtome has special application for cutting thin sectionsof histo-pathological specimens and also caters to the demands of industries suchas plastic, leathers, textiles, rubber & fertilizer. It is ideal for thosewho want to avail advantages of a Erma Microtome at a moderate cost. The entiremechanism stands on a heavy cast iron base ensuring stability and rigidity. Itscompound slide ways of critical tolerances guide the specimen block. The metalhinged cover housing protects the internal mechanism against dust and paraffinwaste, It can be conveniently opened for resetting, cleaning and lubricating.The Microtome is driven by a handle which can also be locked. Cutting sectionsare obtained in different thickness by mechanically operated crank through aknurled knob in front of the instrument.
The knurled knob is graduated in micronsfor feed setting and ready reference. A detent click action ensures positiveadjustments in one micron increment. The knife holder unit is equipped with arotating knife clamp to adjust desired angles for best sectioning. It hasforward and backward movements to ensure contact of specimen with the knife andlateral movement to get maximum use of knife edge. Smooth & accuratespecimen movement is achieved with the time proven operating principles of thefeed mechanism. Travel is entirely independent to the vertical movement of thespecimen block. When the feed limit reaches to an end point, it disengagesitself. To bring the feed screw back, the vice is pressed slightly, and themain gear wheel is turned clockwise till the screw reaches its startingposition. All parts are fabricated from selected alloys and the microtome knifeis manufactured from fine grain steel tested to maintain optimum sharpnessstrength.
