A cutting-edge manual microtome solution
The Accu-Cut® SRM™ 200 Rotary Microtome is a reliable manual rotary microtome developed for all applications of paraffin and hard specimens in clinical, research, and industrial laboratories. This manual microtome displays extraordinary ergonomic characteristics for comfortable operation while maintaining reproducible precision during sectioning. Available with and without retraction.
Compatible with Accu-Edge® Disposable Blades, the SRM 200 ensures superior sectioning in the precise art of cutting quality tissue samples section after section, time after time.
The Accu-Cut SRM 200 Rotary Microtome ensures secure, precise positioning of a specimen block with universal cassette and orientation clamps while facilitating exact, rapid trimming via a trimming lever, which enables specimen advancement of 10 or 50 microns. Micron thickness is handled by an adjustable visual display to ensure accuracy. A universal blade holder base, featuring lateral displacement, allows operators to use the full length of the microtome blade without releasing the blade clamping mechanism or direct blade manipulation.
The rotary microtome hand wheel is designed to run smoothly, minimizing hand stress for maximum efficiency and productivity.

Thick and thin sections/How do I correct thick and thin sections?
Thick and thin: Part of the section is thick, and part of the section is thin, reflecting inconsistent staining.
Knife marks/What causes knife marks in sections?
Knife marks: Vertical lines running through the entire section.
Chatter, aka Venetian blinds/What causes microtome chatter?
Chatter, aka Venetian blinds: parallel lines in the tissue or separation of tissue into fine lines
Moth holes/Why are there holes in tissue sections?
Moth holes: parallel lines in the tissue or separation of tissue into fine lines
Micro chatter/What causes microscopic cracks in tissue sections?
Micro chatter: fine microscopic cracks in the tissue
Disruption/Why are my tissue sections damaged?
Disruption: microscopic damage to the tissue within the section
Compression/Why are my tissue sections distorted?
Compression: distorted or folded appearance
Overexpansion/What causes tissue sections to ‘blow up’?
Overexpansion: cells distorted from too much water
