Economic Efficiency of Modern Laser Based Plastic Microtomy

In modern university histology labs and CRO’s, quality as well as cost- and time efficiency become more important to compete in the market. Especially the throughput of plastic embedded samples is a time consuming procedure to perform sections with either microtomes or ground sectioning technology. Quality of cutting is limited when it comes to compact hard tissues or implants like metal stents in vessels, as ground sectioning technologies are limited in section thickness.

Using laser based microtomy it is possible to increase the efficiency of lab procedures which results in significant higher sample throughput. Lasermicrotomy reduces the overall processing time per sample and also the effective time a technician has to work on it. Beyond, major savings in material can be achieved. Material loss between two sections is 5-10 µm, this enables to perform serial sectioning. Thin sections of non-decalcified hard tissue for IHC can be generated in adequate thickness as well as thin sections of implanted vessels and heart valves for common stainings using laser based microtomy.

Upcoming events

LLS ROWIAK LaserLabSolutions GmbH presents during the autumn congress season at:­

  • BMT 2015, the 49th annual conference of the German Society for Biomedical Engineering
    University of Luebeck, September 16-18, 2015
  • bone-tec 2015, International Bone-Tissue-Engineering Congress
    Stuttgart, October 8-10, 2015
