SliceMaster micro sample preparation tools are handy, compact instruments that can easily cut thin sections from 10 to 200µm. These devices allow the user to view the slicing process of various samples with a microscope, enabling simple set-up and thin section preparation.
The SliceMaster is available in three blade angles, vertical, angled and multi-angled. All of the SliceMaster tools use simple razor blades.
The HS-1 vertical slicer can vertically cut samples such as polypropylene bottles into 100 to 500µm sections, multi-layer paper cartons to 100 to 600µm sections, and PET samples to 150 to 400µm sections. Items such as polyester or other polymers can be sliced with a variable thickness of 100µm or greater.
The HK-1 angled slicer can cut samples at a 15° angle. It can cut samples of coated paper to 140µm, zip-lock bags to 100µm, hair to 80µm and snack food bags to 60µm.
The HW-1 multi-angle slicer can cut samples at any angle from 45 to 90°. Various types of samples can be prepared with thin section thickness of 10 to 500µm, with the ability to select the desired sample thickness.
