Our top of the range high precision, vibrating microtome, this is the finest slicer in the world for preparations for visual patch clamping. Cold light and scope or magnifier are optional.

Sectioning for visual patching of neurological tissue, heart and lung have all been published on the previous generation of Integraslice machine from which the 7000smz represents a significant advance in higher precision AND lower cost.

The all-new vibrating mechanism of the 7000smz, developed after 2 years of extensive R&D by our engineers delivers unprecedented accuracy with nearly silent operation. Every machine is tested before dispatch by our in-house measurement devices and each machine is supplied with its own z-axis calibration checker.

The effect of excessive Z-axis deflection on the health and viability of the tissue preparation has been much discussed since the publication of Jonas et al (2003) and the Campden 7000smz will now deliver perfect sections every time with sub-micron z-axis deflection across a wide range of vibration speed and amplitudes.

The all-new user interface is easy and versatile (no foot switch unlike previous models) and offers simple operation at the push of a button or a range of changeable parameters for the expert user. The Campden 7000smz also gives you longevity of performance, in other words it not only gives sub-micron performance out of the box, but the advance vibrating mechanism does not contain bearings and other elements subject to wear. Thus it will retain the sub-micron z-ad performance for years to come, giving you consistency in your biological preparation.
