H/I brings you the right microtome for every job.
From routine histology to research applications and materials R & D, H/I Microtomes will provide you with the quality and performance you need.

NEW HACKER 200 & 300 Series Microtome
The ergonomic design and safety features of the H/I 200 and 300 Series microtomes make them ideal for the fast paced histology lab. The monoblock specimen carriage eliminates almost all vibration common with multi-component assemblies. The cutting mechanism and course feed systems are mounted on a heavy base casting. The specimen carriage slides up and down on maintenance- and backlash-free cross roller bearings. The X-Y fine orienting system allows the tissue sample to be positioned from the left, freeing the right hand for handwheel operation. The handwheel is positively locked for added safety; once the brake is set, the motor drive cannot be engaged. Knife holders are available for both disposable and conventional steel knives. For added safety, both E- and NB type holders are provided with removable or retractable finger guards. All units are provided with a built-in section counter and a slide-in section waste tray.
All units Made in USA to meet highest technical standards.
