Leica EM TRIM2

Location: Biosciences Room 176

Specimen Trimming Device for TEM, SEM & LM

The Leica EM TRIM2 is a high speed milling system with integrated stereomicroscope and

LED ring illuminator for trimming of biological and industrial samples prior to ultramicrotomy. It features a 1┬Ám feed control for the milling cutter, perpendicular viewing of the embedded sample to determine position for accurate milling, and a superior extraction system with HEPA filter. A perfect pyramid and cutting face of both biological and industrial samples can be produced safely, rapidly and accurately within less than 60 seconds.
