Leica VT1000 A Automated Vibratome


Leica® VT1000 A Automated Vibratome

The Leica® VT1000 A employs an accurate vibrating blade principle that allows sectioning without freezing or embedding, so the viability of the fresh tissue can be maintained. The VT1000’s intuitive design and simple controls are ideal for a wide range of applications. It offers three separate operating modes – automated, single sectioning and manual for ultimate sectioning control.


  • Precise adjustments allow for evenly cut fresh/fixed tissue at a thickness of 35 µm or more
  • Operators control both the section thickness and number of sections with an easy to read LED
    display and three separate operating modes; automatic, single sectioning and manual
  • Adjustable operating parameters minimize deformation of delicate soft tissue and provide more
    uniform sections
