The Leica RM 2255 microtome is a completely motorized microtome that can also be utilized as a manual microtome, due to its counterbalance hand wheel system. Main uses are for sectioning paraffin and resin embedded specimens and some non-standard materials. The Leica RM 2255 microtome can be used in a range of laboratory environments such as routine and research settings.
Features include 70mm vertical stroke, precision orientation system, high powered step-motor system and predefined cutting modes.Designed for fully motorized sectioning of both paraffin- and resin-embedded specimens, the Leica RM2255 supports a broad spectrum of applications; in routine and research laboratories; in histology; in industrial materials and quality control.
Its two-in-one design concept, which allows motorized and manual sectioning, provides reproducible high-quality sections.
