Histo-Line MRS 3500 Ultra-Thin Semi-Automatic Motorized Microtome

Histo-Line microtome MRS3500 model is a Semi-automated rotary microtome particularly
suitable for cutting of paraffin sections, for normal use in histology, but also to the finer cuts
used in the research field. The microtome is coated by a body in a special plastic material
resistant to solvents and free of edges thus minimizing the risk of danger to the operators.
