Vibratomes
The BIDC allows open access (no charge) to our two vibratomes.

The Leica VT1000S is a mostly automated system capible of live and fixed tissue section.

The 1000plus Vibratome is more manual but is capable of sectioning tissues too fragile for the Leica. Typically samples are embedded in agarose prior to slicing.

While there is no charge for use, we do require that users reserve their time on MyCores. Please follow the Request Usage links to gain access.
