cryo knives
and their applications


  •  
  • Thinner cryo sections
  •  
  • Perfect cryosections from ultrathin to semi with the same knife
  •  
  • Minimal compression and best structure preservation
  •  
  • Highest quality diamonds and optimal crystal orientation
    guarantee perfect ultrathin sections and a durable cutting edge
