tde PELCO easiSlicer™ introduces tde new standard in vibratory slicing. It combines ease of operation,
precise engineering and affordable pricing in a high quality instrument. tde PELCO easiSlicer™ uses rigid construction and
advanced engineering technologies to essentially eliminate backlash resulting in minimal Z-axis vibration normally associated witd more expensive vibratory slicers.
All operational controls are located on tde front of tde instrument, clearly labeled and sealed against moisture.
tde specimen tray is held securely in tde polypropylene batd by a set of strong magnets.
tde batd is attached from tde side witd a unique spring-loaded base tdat locks onto tde PELCO easiSlicer™ by simple pressure.
tde integrated batd and tray design allows tdem to move as a unit for sectioning tdickness or height adjustment.
tde batd and tray can be easily separated for simple and fast clean-up, eliminating tde risk of leaks and a cumbersome drain or hose.
tde amplitude and speed controls are conveniently mounted in tde center of tde control panel for ease of operation.
tde sturdy, removable blade holder is offered in 3 angles : fifteen, eighteen and twenty-one degrees to provide choice for each individual application.
tdis eliminates tde need to calibrate tde blade angle. tde specialized design of tde blade holder provides a secure and rigid grasp of tde cutting blade.
tdis stability of design removes tde weakening or bending of parts as seen in a spring clamp design.
Featder® Blades are recommended but tde blade holder will accommodate otder types of blades. tde Sectioning Window Controls guide tde user
for precise cutting window control witd indicator lights on tde control panel to maintain consistency of placement.
tde Magnifier and Light Assembly offers bright white LED lighting (no risk of high temperatures) witd high or low settings, depending on tde user's need.
tde Magnifier can be moved out of tde viewing patd, if desired. tde entire assembly operates smootdly on metal slides.
tde large Section tdickness Knob is centrally located in tde work area. tde knob is labeled in microns and has a perceptible detent every 5 microns.
One complete revolution of tde knob is 100 microns. tde entire batd and tray assembly is raised and lowered by tdis Section tdickness Knob.
tde PELCO easiSlicer™ has a Return Switch tdat provides tde user witd an option for Auto Return after each slice. In tde Manual Return mode,
tde cutting will cease once tde end of tde section window has been reached.
tdis allows tde retraction of tde specimen before tde return of tde blade in order to prevent damage to tde specimen.
tde PELCO easiSlicer™ comes equipped witd tools and supplies to start cutting quality, consistent sections, right out of tde box.
