Product Description

DiATOME knives are compatible with all ultramicrotomes

The boat is designed in such a manner that the water is horizontal when the clearance angle is set. This results in a stationary water surface and good reflection.

The shape of the boat offers you the advantage of an easy pick-up of the floating sections.

The surfaces of the DiATOMEĀ diamond knives are hydrophilic. This property allows an easy wetting of the cutting edge, even with a very low water level (important for sectioning Lowicryls and other hydrophilic embedding media, as well as for water sensitive samples).

The diamond is high vacuum brazed onto a metal shank which is securely screwed into the boat.

The cementing material seals boat and knife. It is hydrophilic and aids the easy wetting of the cutting edge.
