Cool-Cut and Section Transfer System ( Cool-Cut)

Maintain a cool, consistent temperature for paraffin blocks during the sectioning process with the Thermo Scientific™ Cool-Cut accessory. Fits only Thermo Scientific rotary microtomes.

    Directly fits onto the specimen cylinder of the rotary microtome line

    Ability to be equipped as a universal cassette clamp or standard specimen clamp

    Effective when extended cutting periods on the microtome are required to “step section” or “serial section” through the paraffin block


    Peltier device with integrated specimen clamp

    Counter-balance weights

    Power supply

Section Transfer System

Reduce manual handling by automatically transferring section ribbons from the blade to the water bath with the Thermo Scientific™ Section Transfer System™. Adjustable, laminar water flow rate avoids tissue section damage allowing for more usable sections per block. Sections are stretched due to the smooth water flow, providing extremely thin, as well as high-quality, sectioning results.
