Best microtome on the market for Ultramicrotomy.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area: TEM processing and microtomy

"We chose to buy the Leica UC7 Ultramictrome because we had heard great things about the instrument from other labs. Sure enough, this particular ultramicrotome is the best on the market. It is especially user friendly with a great operating system. You can even choose how advanced you want the program to be. We especially appreciate the ease of use, application, and installation of samples. The lighting system is excellent and allows the user to see all areas around the sample blocks."

"This machine is simply spectacular. The optics on the binoculars make it very easy to use for long periods with no eye strain. It is very ergonomically designed with a simple layout that works. The section thickness is always consistent and it makes the task much faster with less sample wastage and better accuracy. While it is more expensive than other ultramicrotomes, the features are by far worth the extra. All in all, I am very pleased with this Leica UC7."
