Building on the principles of SMART Automation, Sakura Finetek introduces the next step in total laboratory automation, the Tissue-Tek AutoSection Automated Microtome for histopathology laboratories. The first of its kind, this fully-automated and programmable microtome aligns and trims blocks with optimal precision, section after section. AutoAlign, the core technology behind AutoSection, precisely orients blocks and dramatically reduces the risk of losing tissue. In addition, with AutoTrim technology, blocks are ready for sectioning in seconds. Another major benefit of automation and stress-free microtomy is the reduction of repetitive motion and the increase of staff satisfaction. AutoSection ensures consistent high-quality sectioning, preservation of valuable tissue, improved productivity and minimal repetitive motions.
