Recipient blocks containing the tissue cores are fitted onto an Arrayit Microtome for sectioning.

Rotary Microtome


Figure 7. Arrayit TissueMax™ Semi-Automatic Rotary Microtome (Cat. MTM) is designed as a companion instrument for our TissueMax™ Tissue Microarrayers in research and clinical laboratories. The Arrayit Microtome combines tissue sectioning efficiency with a compact footprint and ergonomic design to provide high quality tissue sections from TissueMax™ recipient blocks. A motorized precision feed system ensures fast, safe and smooth recipient block sectioning and a solid base provides optimum stability during use. The integrated precision hand wheel is lockable in 360 degrees and the vertical guide is equipped with cross-roller bearings to prevent operational backlash. An integrated switch panel contains a multi-functional LCD display and precision stepper motors guide coarse recipient block movements by 500 µm and fine recipient block movements from 1-25 µm. Horizontal and vertical recipient movements are 30 mm and 64 mm, respectively. The recipient block clamp is rotatable in 360 degrees and a quick release system provides convenience and ease-of-use. Arrayit Microtome size dimensions are (L x W x H) 21” x 15” x 11” (53 x 38 x 28 cm), weight 66 lbs (29.8 kg), and 115-230 volts at 50-60 Hz.
