Fully Functional Leica Benchtop Microtome - For the Lab on a Budget

Listen, I could sit here and drone on about how great of a deal this microtome is, but that's boring for both of us. So I'll just give you the straight facts:

1. It’s guaranteed to perform flawlessly

That’s right. This microtome was tested in-house by one of our professional technicians, who was pleased to note that all aspects of the unit are operational, including the footswitch and specimen advancement/retraction.

2. It’s in great shape

Bearing virtually no cosmetic flaws, this microtome didn't need to be cleaned, lubricated, or otherwise serviced at all when it arrived at our facility.

3. It has some neat accessories

This thing comes packaged with a lateral displacement base, a low-profile blade holder, a foot pedal, and a universal quick-release cassette clamp.

4. It has specimen retraction

If you’re a regular microtome user, you know the value of specimen retraction. Without it, the friction caused by the blade rubbing against the sample on its return damages the sample. That worry has been totally negated by the integrated retraction that the RM2155 has.

5. It supports mechanical trimming

The mechanical trimming function in this thing makes it a breeze to cut in 10µm, 30µm, or 70µm intervals. No need to manually make those fine adjustments!

In Conclusion...

Tested, Serviced, and Ready to Slice 

We cleaned and lubricated this microtome thoroughly, including the knife assembly and specimen clamp. With our cleaning and service processes, we ensure that our microtomes function as well as possible before sale.

Note: This unit does not include palm rests (see photos).
