The Hand & Table Microtome is used to cut thin sections of Microscopic materials, such as specimen parts of plants and animals.It is considered as the basic form of a microtome permitting microtomic cuts by hand in a quick and accurate way. The microtome is suitable for practical courses in microscopy, for field work during excursions, for school education and for a serious amateur of biology. A well constructed hand operated bench microtome can be securely attached to the edge of any bench, table or work surface with the help of fixing clamp. The section platform has a smooth wide flat top and durable glass surface to guide the sectioning razor & to protect the hand. The feed screw has fine and long threads so that the embedded material may be advanced very gradually to cut thin sections easily. The Razor is made of surgical quality steel with 75mm cutting edge.
