This is a 6 volt 20 watt halogen stand alone lighting unit. On a jointed arm the lamp head can be positioned to suit the specimen. Ideal for all stereomicroscopes. Click stop brightness control with on/off switch. Condition as new.


Rotary Microtome

This unit could equally be offered in the Vintage section. It is engineering at its best. It is a relatively small (but very heavy) rotary microtome. The knife holder system moves on a dovetail system and the specimen holder is designed as a clamp for wooden blocks. Section thickness setting. A treat to use (from someone who used microtomes professionally for  a good few years)!


Cambridge Rocker Microtome

The Cambridge Rocker Microtome was first designed by one of the sons of Charles Darwin and it remains probably the ideal instrument for those new to microtomy, and for cutting ribbons of sections of smaller plant and animal tissues has never been bettered. This unit is in very good condition and is complete with cutting knife and specimen chuck. Recommended.

Price £141.67 + vat
