Description: Ultra-thin sections of specimens are cut using a specialized instrument called an “ultramicrotome”. Ultramicrotome is a method for cutting specimens into extremely thin slices, called ultra-thin sections that can be studied and documented at different magnifications in a transmission electron microscope (TEM).
- The usual thicknesses for transmission electron microscopic examinations range between 20 nm and 150 nm.
- A key advantage of ultramicrotome is the size and homogeneity of the electron-transparent area of specimens prepared with this technique.
- Ultramicrotome is a fast and clean method of producing ultra-thin sections of biological samples as well as polymers, rubber, ductile, and even hard and brittle materials.
