The EMS 4500 Oscillating Tissue Slicers represent the most thoughtfully designed solution to sectioning either fixed or fresh tissue, as thin as 5 microns. No longer is there a need for embedding or freezing your sample, and preparation time is reduced dramatically. The risk of distortion and artefacts normally associated with these procedures is eliminated. The EMS 4500 and 5000 meet the highest standards for precision and accuracy as well meeting or exceeding the performance of units on the market costing twice as much.

Applications

The EMS 5000 series may be used for the sectioning of samples in the fields of electrophysiology of fresh tissue, immunocytochemistry and immunohistochemistry, neurophysiology, neuropathology, experimental biology, histology, cytology, botanical research, microscopy, polymer and materials science. The EMS 5000 now features a new design of the slicer head which minimises Z-axis vibration. This improvement dramatically improves slice surface integrity and is especially beneficial in the field of fresh tissue where IR/DIC imaging methods are concerned. The unique blade holder has now been modified to accept razor, sapphire, diamond and glass blades.

Features:

  • Reduce time between slices with user programmable travel window (cutting window). This allows the sectioning cutting range of the blade to be customised to the specimen sample. 
  • Home button programmable window guarantees rapid sectioning of even the large of specimens.
  • Sectioning of samples in two different modes, single slice mode where unit sections samples and harvests them while the blade repositions itself to perform the next slice, and in the multiple slice mode the EMS 5000 will automatically perform multiple uniform slices.
  • Control panel has been redesigned to allow for ambidextrous and ergonomic operation. 
  • The removable tray is made from moulded clear polycarbonate for improved viewing of the slicing operation. The keypad has been sealed to avoid buffer spill seepage. 
  • Two white LEDs are installed in the blade head, which provide constant cold illumination of the specimen during the slicing process.
  • Engineered for maximum stability, which ensures even the most delicate of tissue to be cut successfully every time. 
  • The knife holder allows any blade (as per list) to be secured and the blade angle set from 10- 20 degrees. T
  • he specimen mount is x, y, z axis adjustable and the knife advance is continuously adjustable with a touch of the keypad from 0- 5mm/s and the section thickness is now adjustable in 1 micron increments ranging from 1-999 microns. 
  • The precision slicer features automatic touch selection of section thickness, blade speed, advance and a user-defined travel window, so that the consecutive sections may be cut easily and rapidly. 
  • Touch pad control of the blade height, slice counter/slice thickness, precise bar graph displays of blade oscillation and advance speeds. Blade oscillation is adjustable from 50-5000 cycles/minute and advance speed is adjustable continuously from 100 microns - 5mm/sec.

EMS 4500 Tissue Slicer

The EMS 4500 is a scaled down version of the EMS 5000. It has the same specifications as the EMS 5000. The difference between the two units is that the EMS 4500 does not include the following features and accessories:

  • Adjustable window
  • Multi-slice function
  • Home functionality
  • Foot switch
  • Tissue blocks
  • Vice holder

The EMS 4500 can be upgraded to the complete EMS 5000 unit at any time.
