Leitz Freezing Microtome

This is not really for the amateur but for those with some experience of microtomy. The microtome was used to cut frozen sections of fixed material by using the sudden expansion of compressed carbon dioxide gas from a cylinder. The connection pipe and freezing stage are present but should only be attached to a cylinder of gas by those who are experienced with the procedure. It currently has a stage that will take paraffin blocks attached to a wooden chuck which can also be sectioned by this microtome. Sectioning knife included. The microtome is clearly well used but is fully functional.

Unlike the Eyecam, these cameras need a cctv adapter to link the camera to standard microscope eyetubes and the cctv adapter can be inserted into the monocular eyetube (23.2mm), or one of the binocular or into the trinocular tube of almost all microscopes. USB 2.0 Aptina CMOS sensor. Sold with CCTV adapter, USB lead and software - a saving of £68.

This is a wooden microscope case for those microscopists that have to ‘marry’ their microscopy passion with the furniture of their homes. The back and bottom of these cases are from block MDF but the rest of the case is from ‘real wood’ - medium oak. Carrying handle and lock and key. This is a substantial case and not really designed for microscope transport but for microscope stowage in full view. External dimensions 480mm height, 400mm depth and 300mm width with internal measurements 430mm height, 350mm depth and 260mm width. A piece of furniture rather than a microscope case.
