This Olympus Model Cut 4060E microtome has all the features you may possibly want in a top of the line microtome. It has a retraction function that prevents the specimen from scraping against the back of the blade on the up stroke. It turns smooth as silk and cuts beautiful ribbons (see images) cleanly and precisely. All the controls are crisp and you may operate it under power or manually, as the situation may require.
This microtome was manufactured in Germany for the North American market. It is made to be used with 115V/60Hz power. A step down transformer will be required to operate it with 230V/50Hz power.
The sale of this item may be subject to regulation by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration & state & local regulatory agencies. Accordingly, do not bid on this item unless you are an authorized purchaser.
This is a storage auction find. The manager of the facility said it was taken from a working lab and has been in storage less than a year. I have moved all the levers and knobs and everything seems to be working as it should. There is a very small crack at the top of the case in the front on the right hand side (pictured). I have taken all of this into consideration when pricing this microtome.
I have taken the description from others that are listed on ebay. This is the actual unit you will be receiving, and it includes everything pictured. I will offer a 100% money back guarantee.
Contact me with questions. This microtome is HEAVY and therefore I have to charge the requisite shipping. If you are located in the Austin, San Antonio or Houston area - I will deliver this for free.
