The surfaces of the 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).

PT-X & PT-XL PowerTome Ultramicrotomes


For the preparation of thin sections for electron microscopy the RMC line of ultramicrotomes has the longest pedigree in the industry. When they became a part of Boeckeler Instruments, a company with over 60 years experience manufacturing precision instruments, the stage was set for us to raise the bar on an already excellent product.


The result:
Smooth . . . We designed a new cutting engine with exceptional levels of precision tolerance. This design reduces “play” between the parts of the engine to a minimum, virtually eliminating section chatter and susceptibility to external vibration.
