Low profile 76 x 8mm.
High profile 76 x 14mm.

Selecting the Correct Blade

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

Samples are available on request.
