A microtome is a specialized laboratory instrument designed for the precision slicing of thin sections of biological or material samples for microscopic examination. It plays a crucial role in various scientific fields, including histology, pathology, and materials science. Microtomes come in different types, including rotary microtomes, cryostats, and ultramicrotomes, each tailored to specific applications. Rotary microtomes are commonly used in histology laboratories to prepare tissue samples for microscopy, while cryostats enable the sectioning of frozen specimens. Ultramicrotomes are employed for cutting ultra-thin sections for transmission electron microscopy. Regardless of the type, microtomes ensure consistent and accurate sectioning, facilitating detailed analysis and research in diverse scientific disciplines.
