The Leica SM2000 R sliding microtome is the instrument of choice for demanding operations that involve routine sectioning of paraffin-embedded biological and medical specimens. Fitted with its low maintenance cross roller bearings, the SM2000 R ensures smoothness and precision without affecting stability.

The SM2000 R microtome with its quick release specimen clamping system can be equipped with a universal cassette clamp or standard clamp for paraffin blocks. Precise fine orientation allows samples to be accurately aligned with the knife. For critical samples, which usually require reduced cutting force, the knife can be positioned at an angle. An easy-to-clean section waste tray is also available as an optional accessory.

The Leica SM2000 R knife holder is designed to accommodate both standard knives and disposable blades. A magnet on the back ensures safe and easy knife installation, and an integrated knife guard is provided for enhanced safety. The knife or disposable blade holder of this Leica microtome can be fixed in the holder with minimal time and effort. The clearance angle can be adjusted while the knife remains clamped.

The Leica SM2000 R has an automatic specimen advance feature that can be adjusted to the size of the sample. Operator safety is enhanced by fixing the sledge in the sectioning area before section removal using magnetic force or by positively locking the sledge in any position during section removal.

Ideal for biological and industrial applications, the Leica SM2000 R sliding microtome has both automatic and manual specimen feed via the coarse feed wheel to accommodate different individual needs. Efficient and rapid sectioning is at your disposal with the Leica SM2000 R microtome.
