Campden Instruments

Blades, ceramic - 5 pack

Code 7550-1-CCampden
Specialized Ceramic blades for Campden Vibrating Microtomes. These blades are honed with a single bevel for superior slicing, particularly in tissue from older animals. Ceramic Microtome blades also need to be replaced less frequently than Stainless Steel Microtome blades; meaning less frequent z-axis recalibration is required.
