Microtome blades, disposable, Sturkey Gold

The gold-coloured titanium nitrate coating lowers friction and strengthens the edge. Unlike the low profile, polymer coated knives, 2and3 micrometre sections are not possible. These knives are more robust and excellent for routine histology and tougher specimens. They are commonly used in cryostats.
Dimensions: high profile, heavy duty thickness, 76 x 14 x 0.43mm.
Dispensers: These disposable knives are packed in a well designed bulk dispenser. Pressing a button lifts a single blade for safe removal. On the underside the dispenser accepts spent blades for safe disposal. The high profile 'Gold' dispenser contains 120 blades.

Samples are available on request.

Excellence in microtome knives for 60 years

Sturkey blades are as good as or even better than the over-priced brands.
When aiming for excellent sections and great blade durability, it is important to match blades to the job.

At high performance levels, blades are good for fairly specific tasks:

  • 'Select' for 2µm sections of soft tissue, but with little durability
  • 'Silver' for 2-4 µm sections and improved durability
  • 'Extremus' for 4µm and thicker sections, excellent durability
  • 'Diamond' is for hard materials, even small bones
  • 'Gold' is particularly useful for cryo sections
