HistoDream Microtomes

Automated & Semi-automated Microtomes

Designed to enhance safety and efficiency of your cutting routine

The sectioning phase of histological tissues is a pivotal step for H&E, IHC and molecular techniques. This process requires an advanced tool to ensure high-quality sections, allow for safe and ergonomic operations for the technician and provide an efficient workflow. The Milestone microtome line has been built to address all these challenges through rotary microtomes designed around your needs. The HistoDream M, semi-automated, and HistoDream AM, fully automated, offer a rugged and reliable approach to sectioning.

The benefits of HistoDream Microtomes

    Zero-position is easily identified on the orienting head to ensure correct positioning. The 360° orientating head along with the mobility on both the x- and y-axis, ensures superior precision and alignment of the block. The blade holder slides sideways in both directions, to take full advantage of the entire cutting edge.
    The motorized specimen feed is controlled through the touchscreen and stabilized via an innovative anti-vibration mechanism. A spacious waste tray with antistatic coating reduces and simplifies clean-ups. On the top of the microtomes, a compartment allows storage and access to tools routinely used.
    Up-to-date features ensure the highest operational safety: emergency stop, electrical brake that activates automatically when cutting is paused, manual lock, finger guard.
    The user-friendly touchscreen offers easy access to all cutting parameters. The handwheel is balanced via an innovative counterweight mechanism to minimize user fatigue and prevent injuries. The automated microtome is available with a foot switch and external controllers.
    The automated and semi-automated microtomes offer the highest flexibility to match your current and future needs: low- and high-profile blades as well as with a range of different clamps (quick release clamps, standard specimen clamps, clamps for SuperMega cassettes).

Superior Tracking for Accurate Diagnosis

The HistoDream automated and semi-automated microtomes offer unique tracking capabilities. During cutting, the histotechs have access to all the information collected during the grossing step. Simply by scanning the cassette, the operator will be able to retrieve the digitized images taken during grossing in order to compare with the embedded cassette, thus addressing potential mismatched numbers, sizes, or types of specimens and ensuring the chain of custody
