Ultramicrotomy

    Boeckeler's AtumTome Instrument

    The use of Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM), Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM), Scanning Probe Microscopy, and Fourier-Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) requires care and precision during the sample preparation process for best results.

    RMC Boeckeler’s PowerTome is a fully modular ultramicrotome, upgradable from a routine to an advanced instrument. Known for its durability, its power-driven cutting stroke will enable you to slice through a wide variety of materials ranging from softer to extremely hard materials. As such, the PowerTome is used for research in many different industries ranging from life sciences to materials sciences.

    The modular nature of the ultramicrotome is designed to allow you to add features that best your requirements without investing in features that you don’t need. With the PowerTome ultramicrotome as the base unit, users are able to add on and remove features according to their application, enabling the same ultramicrotome in your lab to be used for different applications including room temperature ultramicrotomy, cryo ultramicrotomy, and array tomography.

    Our team of Application Scientists is on hand to advise you on the best configurations and accessories suitable for your application.
