The new rotary microtomes line Galileo Series 2 is designed to meet requirements of precision, reliability, safety and assure the best performances in histological samples cutting.
Galileo AUTO Series 2 is a fully automatic rotary microtome with great histological sample cutting (in 0.5 µm increments) with attention and precision according to the high standards for user’s safety.
Galileo AUTO Series 2 can be used both in automatic and semi-automatic mode, assuring maximum flexibility of use.
The handwheel is equipped with an innovative system to give a smooth assisted-handwheel running: it supports the operator during the manual working, enables user comfort with a safe and smooth sectioning improving operator’s work condition and productivity.
Galileo Series 2 can also be supplemented with the PRO System, an all-in-one solution that allows to memorizing the position of trimming of all samples and recalling it at the appropriate time for cutting. This compact system allows to reduce the sectioning time and increase productivity.
The line is composed by two models:
Galileo AUTO Series 2 in automatic mode can easily be adapted to the needs of the operator using 3 different controls:
Galileo Series 2 can also be used in semi-automatic mode by ultra-smooth-running handwheel.
Galileo SEMI Series 2 is a semi-automatic microtome designed to meet the requirements of operators who usually work with manual microtomes.
Galileo SEMI Series 2 offers a safe and comfortable manual cutting experience with reliable results.
The PRO system makes it possible to optimize the work with the Galileo Series 2 rotary microtome line, guaranteeing productivity and traceability of the section of histological samples.
