During the cutting process, the cutting blade may have been changed, cutting angles have been optimized, small errors have been corrected – all without any intervention from the user.
The result is a timesaving cutting process that complements the natural workflow in the laboratory and enables better utilization of other technology and minimizes the risk of bottlenecks – for example, by letting the cutting process run overnight so that the desired cuts are ready the next morning.
The AS-410M has a wide range of advanced facilities as standard.
Automatic replacement of cutting blade
The condition of the cutting blade is monitored continuously, and the blade is replaced automatically if knife marks are observed in the cut.
Paraffin and other excess material from the cut is sucked away to maintain a high standard.
Automatic adjustment of cutting angle
All blocks are automatically adjusted to the optimal angle relative to the microtome knife.
Ultra-precise cutting and mounting
The machine produces cuts with very great uniformity in thickness due to the cutting takes place with precise timing at a controlled temperature.
Easy to expand
The AS-410M can be expanded and adapted with a large selection of accessories.
Code reader and sample identification
The barcode on the cassette is read, and information from this and LIS is printed directly on the slide, which reduces the risk of human error.
Automatic surface recognition
The machine can be set to detect the tissue surface photographically, so that the cuts are cut with the largest possible tissue surface in the block.
