Microtome for histological sections

A microtome is a cutting device that can be used to create very thin section preparations. It is used to produce microscopic preparations which are later to be radiographed, for example biological tissue. In histology (tissue science), the preparation of sections is a basic requirement for the examination of tissue characteristics. The thickness of the sections is significantly smaller than the diameter of a human hair and typically ranges from 0.1 to 100 µm.
