Diamond knives - DiATOME

Diamond knives - DiATOME

Diamond knives supplied by Agar Scientific are manufactured from high purity, gem quality diamonds providing a sharp, durable edge for sectioning applications in biological and materials sciences. DiATOME diamond knives are available for a wide range of room and low temperature applications for TEM. Diamond knives have been designed to produce high quality sections from both hard and soft embedded specimens with minimal compression. For studies of biological and industrial materials diamond knives have become an essential tool.

A re-sharpening and exchange service is available. Our sales team will be happy to quote for these services.
