High-quality ultramicrotome for precise room temperature and cryo-sectioning.

Ultramicrotome Leica EM UC7 is a high-quality tool for sectioning of specimens for light, electron and atomic force microscopy. It has never been easier and more precise.

Precise manipulation of the obtained section is possible by the stereomicroscope with higher magnification than ever before. Optionally, it is possible to equip the microscope with a camera, enabling imaging of the process on an external monitor. For sectioning the preparation, either glass knives (obtained from knifemaker Leica KMR3) or diamond knives are used.
